Tough for VS, but not sustained enough for HVS. 3 stars!!

Felt more like HVS to me. Quite powerful and technical moves early on and top slab very exposed. Extremely glad of the small cam protecting last moves otherwise I would have probably backed off. 3 star route I think.

Awkward thrutchy crux near the bottom. Should have tried a head jam!

Found a lovely positive crimp in the diagonal crack that saved me having to jam!

A wounderfull testing route one of my favourites so far. The wording in Rock Fax and grading make this sound easier than it is. The start 'climb round the flake' farly steep reasonably blank face starting under a large block! fab moves to get round this and good gear in the flake. Micro cams made life very easy and better protected than could have been but the travers on the ledge is exposed and gearless making a very exiting finish for a lead climb.

Crux at bottom of climb which was a shame as the rest of the climb seemed much less bold after that. some tricky placements but pretty chuffed to finish the climb despite a couple of bleeding fingers

want to lead this next. tricky first part dave fell off first time he tried it- it was a bit wet and pollished, and exciting top as dave placed a put in the shot hole that fell out i think. it was funny

crag was very green and wet so decided to top rope the routes as you just could not tell when your foot or hand might pop off.

had beta on pro for top ledge traverse. BETA FOLLOWS!
- small friend, in this case a borrowed 0.25 wild country cam, which was most welcome as the traverse is delicate (and I am not ;-D).
Bats round the buttress as I belayed felt appropriate.

As an escape from Waster. Odd but fun little traverse at the top.

A nightmare, first moves were ok, but quickly into a very muddy, green and wet crack in which a nut key was the best gear. Finishes with a traverse which feels really exposed, and a final smearing move up to the top. Never again.
month is a guess
