Javelin* HVS 5a
[Javelin, the crux sequence., 3 kb]63m, 3 pitches. Some good climbing unfortunately spoiled by a vegetated central section.
Pitch 1. A couple of small wires are needed to protect some thin moves up the arete.
Pitch 2 Climb the wall and fight your way through the vegetation to a good ledge and tree belay beneath the final wall.
Pitch 3 Climb the obvious corner groove slightly right of centre.
( the direct line through the V shaped overhang is the top pitch of Ace High )

some bits of good climbing interspersed with a lot of veg and a confusing description in the old guide made me understand why these routes are being neglected. P3 redeemed it and micros are very useful on P1.

Led p1. Bold moves up arete, good gear well below, only moderate quality small wire close. Didn't carry RPs, may have been better if I did? Not as good as it makes out, only the arete on P1 is much good, middle part is awful, good finish: perhaps just 1 star. Probably best done as 3 pitches.

First pitch and make sure you have small wires with you. Split into 3 pitches for ease but middle one a little over grown.

Good route, considering the jungle in the middle.
