25 Cool route, I'd say HVS for the bottom section of the route

I wouldn't say this is 5c, I was very pleasantly surprised by how much easier than that it is.

In the '89 guide this is shown as the exit from the cave only at VS5a, which in it's own right you could argue may be soft HVS 5a. The start given in the BMC guide and suggested here, up the thin crack on the left is the start of Don't bark, bite E15c in the '89 guide, which then exits the roof on the left. This is 5b/c, the good wires only coming when it is all over.

The starting slab is quite committing until you get to the decent wires, especially as green as it is. Was a bit confused as to where to go from the cave as it wasn't in my 2001 Rockfax. Exited to the right and had a good old struggle. Good fun, and hard for VS.

Felt hard in the heat of the sun although I can see how it could feel steady for HVS

Ardo 08/Jun/13 2nd dog

Took a slip on the bottom slab, but nice little route with varied climbing.

djones66 06/May/13 Lead O/S

This is a good route, even if it is a bit of a one-move wonder; its a good exciting move (well, short sequence) in a dramatic position. You can climb out using the flakes all the way from the back of the cave. or you can join the flakes at more or less any point, including the lip (where you can get what I think are good wires- can place them before setting off). Recommended.
