Tinker Tailor* HVS 5a

Rockfax Description
The crack right of Aero gives a similar pitch but the move past the overlap is a touch harder. From the overlap continue up the wall to a niche and finish up the right-hand of two cracks. © ROCKFAX

Solid 5a move at the roof with some very sustained 4c sequences make this solid HVS 5a. This said the route is easily worth 2 stars and any wobbly holds will hopefully be dealt with by traffic.

Good solid route with a low crux, getting up to the jugs on the break quite delicate. Apparently my crux-protecting gear fell out :-(
