Micro cams make the corner less intimidating. Really nice climb.

So instead of taking the line under the roof, I appear to have headed onto the quartze bulge and tree of 'the chute'. I then took the left ramp after the tree and finished as per guide book. Nice route!

Thought this quite tough for VS, HVS seems fairer as very bold up the groove (which was wet which didn't help). Also continued direct at the end rather than moving left which has some nice moves but is not VS either! Fun route whichever way you go, but don't listen to the person saying their is tons of gear, there isnae much!

Sam says- most gripped i've been on a VS in a while, very little good gear and hard to find. Maybe HVS 4b/c? I say- piece of piss, big poofter. Best route in aaaages, the corner and move onto the ledge are ace! (on second...!)
