Rockfax Description
The staggered overlaps on the left wall of the dominating corner of Central Groove. Start at the base of the corner.
Climb Central Groove for 10m and access the overlaps. Follow these to a pull over onto the cracked wall and the belay ledge a short distance above. Abseil off. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
VALA 160' HARD VERY SEVERE 5A- (1963) Good strenuous climbing, but there are resting places. Be warned, the cracks ‘eat’ Friends. Start as for Central Groove (Pg 13).
1) 5a-. Climb Central Groove, until it’s possible to move left, and layback round an overhang. Continue up to the main overhang, a long reach directly over this leads to increasingly better holds, and a ledge. Most abseil off, but you can go
on to:
2) 4a. Walk down left behind a flake until beneath a small overhang, surmount this to gain a ledge. Overgrown.
3) 5a+. Climb the problematic wall, between the two chimneys, finishing up
a slab. Hard.

Great climb. We climbed it in the dark, by headtorch, which I think probably makes it less daunting for the second. The crux move would normally feel very exposed, but in the dark you can't really see anything but the rock in front of you.

Really need to invest in a watch or headtorch as we finished this in the dark which made this already exciting climb a lot scarier than it needed to be! Great traverse at the top of the climb to the underside of the overhang. Need to do it again in daylight to appreciate the exposure

God! I climbed this 33 years ago!!! I can still remember pulling over the overlap - there is a photo of me working up the courage to make the move. In fact, that was all it needed - my recollection is that the move was pretty straightforward. No Friends - just a large hex made by Clog.
