I led the easy pitch! This is E1 in GroundUp and Rockfax. Even the old Tremadog guide gives P2 5b so not sure why its HVS overall??

Led pitches 2 and 3 in one. The traverse on 2nd pitch is quite serious with poor protection. E1,5b is an appropriate grade in my opinion.

I thought HVS 5b fair grade as most of climb is a lot easier and thin move left well protected by peg and wire (stay low, much harder if you traverse higher). It is committing heading to the arete though so I can see why people think E1. **

Traversed high and discovered I could not reach (by about 3cm) to make the move, and took a 3m inverted lob - doh! Traversed low and made harder moves to gain arete from below the second time. Very good climb.
