Lobster* HVS 5b

Rockfax Description
Wild climbing that requires a determined approach - well protected. Start at an undercut crack/chimney above a block in the bay right of the base of the descent. Climb the crack in its entirety, with a welcome rest at 8m on the left. The second half of the crack has some useful holds on the left. Where the crack ends, finish up the much easier wall above, taking care with a couple of big semi-detached flakes. © ROCKFAX

Tough climb, went wrong at first roof. Bad rope drag.
Peter Lovell - Lead O/S - 13/Apr/14

Tough at the grade - gear and holds not that obvious. Worth a star, though.
