Inkerman Groove*** VS 4c
[Tony on Inkerman's Direct (HVS 5a), 2 kb]One of the best limestone VSís in Britain. Follow Wogs to a point above the overhang at the start of its second pitch, then move up to a crack at the bottom left of the blank grey and white wall. Make a technical traverse right to the base of the slim curving groove and follow this to an easing above an ivy patch. Exit the groove rightwards to a tree and the top just behind. Superb. © ROCKFAX

Roped solo (Shunt). Forgot my chalk bag, loved the traverse! Soloed the last 3 metres or so, shunt stopped letting rope through.. Should have redirected the rope from its anchors through some gear so it was more in line.

surfbish - Lead O/S - 23/Apr/09 with Ben and Tom

Very good indeed. Thankfully there is a bit more friction once the slick holds of Wogs are left behind. The crux is the traverse, but maintains its interest all the way up the groove. Previously looked at but ended finishing up Wogs; without really leaving that route, then caught glimpses of the next team on it whilst abseiling out my gear.

Tried the direct start- much harder than 5a. Tricky traverse to get out from under the second roof and back in again above it.
Shepsi - 2nd - 22/Mar/08 with Rob Clement

Tried the direct start which is way more than 5a. Traversed in slightly below the line and continued up. Followed classic rather than direct line due to terror. Not sure it's that great though- it doesn't really follow the groove, quite meandery really.
