Awesome. Clean except for a cheeky rest on a sling before the move left. Very pleased nonetheless.

I found this pretty tough compared to other HVS I've done on the gorge. A couple of stuck pieces of gear meant that I got really pumped and had to hang on the rope to try and get them out. That aside, sustained climbing throughout. Be careful with the initial scramble up if there's been any rain in the last few days, it will be slippery

Typical Avon climbing, made me think in places. Most of the pegs (and there's a lot of them) seem decent at the moment.
Nick Russell - Lead rpt - 04/May/15 with Emily
This was really hard - awkward, holds impossible to find. I spent ages stuck at one section and the rest of it wasn't exactly smooth going. Amazed I made it up without falling off - a very close thing.

Excellent! Lots of 5a climbing, some of it felt quite hard, gear not overly great on the lower third, so felt very much upper end HVS. A bit of rain at the start and strong winds towards the top added to the interest.

First half is crap. Loose rock, poor and fiddly protection. The second half the quality of rock and protection increases and makes it a worth while route. Lots of avon shrimps!

Big runout in a section of series of 5b moves on fairly loose rocks, followed by a 5c crux with 10 metres of fall potential (I negotiated the crux overhang from the left)... At least E2. Did we climb the right route...? Not sure.

Great HVS climb, did'nt know I still had it in me, plenty of gear and excellent positions, not much polish either - looked like not too many people still climb this, easier than Bonbogies ( or maybe I was more tired by then)

nice steep and well protected climbing on big holds. abbing off before the slab is advised unless you want to fight through the bushes and brambles at the top to get to the fence!

Thought this was quite full-on for HVS, but still a fair grade. Started a bit lower than the description suggests, and climbed a steep wall up to the ledge. By the loose flakes and lack of polish, I don't think it's climbed all that often
Nick Russell - Lead O/S - 06/May/12 with Katherine
I found this quite hard and steep. Got pumped at the 1st overhang and had to sit on the rope before getting it on the second attempt.

Amazing route. I recommend being fairly confident on HVS before doing it though as the route reading can be difficult in places as well as the protection being fairly dubious and the climb very intimidating. Probably didn't help with the fact that it was incredibly windy and quite cold making it feel even more tenuous on the crux.

Brilliant, had forgotten how good a route this is! Difficulties are sustained, but its fairly well protected all the way - ran out of quickdraws and had to clip gear with just krabs, which meant a lot of rope drag on a single.

Great line and some typical Avon climbing - fairly spaced gear - rusty pegs (though most got backed up with a decent nut) - better than The Corpse, and a little harder IMO.
