A little gem. The start is tricky but the rock, protection and climbing are superb. © Rockfax

Really enjoyable climbing all the way up. Nearly came off when a foothold broke but held it together :)

had a bit of a struggle on this, snapped a foothold and generally got a bit pumped from being fat and weak! Not my finest HVS climb

After viewing the start with much trepidation, "the frog" worked. weight on arms, both feet high out to the sides, pull up over weight onto feet, and push up. Didn't even feel tricky. Lots of gear at start, but then the middle seemed a little run out (bail or push on hard). Tired self out in middle trying to get nut out, and top section then became a grunt and struggle (but that may have been only having 3 1/2 hrs sleep and fingers like icicles.) Great climb though.

Took a big unexpected fall on lead attempt after nailing the start so top roped to get gear and attempt again. Gutted about lead fall as climb was less hard above.
