Acheron* HVS 5a
[Nolan on Acheron, 3 kb]20m. Good physical climbing, despite the rather vegetated appearance from below. Start by scrambling up the slope, past the base of the huge corner, to a belay below a layback-flake. 22m. Layback the flake to a sloping ledge and then enter the left-leaning corner which succumbs to good, old-fashion udging. At the top of the corner, traverse left to a bolt belay in an outcrop.

Top crack was soaked but jammed my way through it. Nice climb and good rests in between 5a moves.

Fairly sustained throughout in my opinion. Lowered off from the stance and stripped the gear so remus could get back to empire of the sun
