Up Against the Wall HVS 5a
Climb the harder-than-it-looks lower wall to gain a niche and finish direct. Not as well protected as you might think. © ROCKFAX

This climb is in 26 logbooks, and on no wishlists.

Looked easy from the ground. Wasn't. Didn't feel too happy with the gear below the crux and couldn't commit, hands going numb while I faffed around - had to downclimb to the ground and give myself a talking to.

This is a underestimated route - really good quality but nearly as hard as some E2s I have climbed

Looked deceptively innocuous, but I bailed off the lead - very little gear on thin moves. Others passing by confirmed its sandbagginess. E1 I think.

Not great gear, moves quite hard to.

My first proper fall, gear popped, just stopped short of a bolder and a broken back!
