Rockfax Description
This pleasant route wanders up the left-hand side of the buttress. Climb the lower wall beneath the big open groove of Ricochet to a ledge. Trend up and leftwards to some cracks above a ledge. Climb the crack to another ledge and finish up the groove above. Take care with loose rock on this upper section. © Rockfax

The crack and overhang above provides the meat of the route. Felt harder than Army Dreamers which we'd just done. The crack was greasy. Rain came in just as I finished and Dan seconded in the wet.

DanChad 03/Aug 2nd O/S

Definitely HVS. Started raining as I came up so the crack felt pretty hard.

Strong up to the last 5m. Caught arm on the overhand and left arm went numb causing fall. Gutted!!

Vs my ass. Maybe up to the crack but defo hvs onwards . Really enjoyed it. Damp at the start of the crack made me have second thoughts. Worth a star at least. Has a bit of all sorts. 😊

Agree with below comments, most DEFINITELY hvs; good gear all the way, but pumpy as anything. Especially when only using the left hand crack to begin with!! (HINT: use both crack systems..)

Tough. Given HVS in the new guide and just about deserves it.

took some time to place protection on the overhang, before committing to some moves that involved a lot of arms.
