15 odd years of on and off attempts plus 15 odd tries and a slump tonight. Finally the beast can torment me no more, I need never even look at it again. I can't think of a harder route I've done anywhere, ever, if the first few moves to gain the shelf were the last few it'd get E3 not HVS.

Bloody hard for HVS would go as far as the hardest HVS I have done. Worked out the start with a pad then strapped on for the lead.

Utterly, utterly desperate. The top groove is harder than it looks!

Bottom moves took me a go or two, really easy when you work out the beta. The top half was pretty easy too.

Woohoo! Jumped off once (on to a mat) from the top of the crack as I got pumped silly placing gear there, then did it clean after that. Also have failed on it twice (falling off from the top of the crack trying to get on the shelf - not sure how) about 2 years ago. Hence RP.
Basically felt ok today though, so very pleased. Neil couldnt do it, which doesnt happen very often :)

Couldn't get off the ground on this one a year ago. Felt easy today. Shame it doesn't keep going.
joe larner - Lead O/S - 13/Feb/08
Good route. Does seem hard for 5b. Fell off twice at the very start. Then got it. The layback crack above is great!
