The Laughing Cavaliers*** HVS 5a
[Will seconding The Laughing Cavaliers, HVS 5b, Shorn Cliff, Wye Valley, 4 kb]The routes starts at the rightmost of the two corners in the middle of the wall, as shown in the picture in the guide book. Climb to the break in angle and aim slightly rightwards towards the downward-pointing tree branch, where the downward-pointing flake is visible, looking like a loose block from the bottom. The thread is on a ledge below this, which can also be clipped from No Muskateers before it traverses off rightwards.

From here, the leftward trending line of flakes is visible, and the final flake is the obvious highest point of rock above.

Slabby HVS that definitely deserves the 3 stars. Good moves and generally good gear. As with Bitter Battle Tears, the holds are pretty wierd, with lots of pockets, knobbly bits etc. Looking forward to coming back here and trying the rest of the routes on this part of the crag, they look quality!

Rob had a toprope on it for andy and I knew there wasn't going to be enough time to lead it and probably wouldn't be back at Shorn cliff for a while so had a blast, although it takes the most obvious line on the cliff I think the climbing on the other HVS's is actually more fun.

dsgarner - TR O/S - 06/Apr/13 with Mike Brookes, Tala M

dont know what to think about this as I think I climbed 3 different routes? start is straight forward an obvious enough but then it all went strange on the slab. I got a couple of good threads then moved upto the peg on the e3 whilst looking for the mysterious juggy flake. I avoided the peg on theright and ended up on some pockets above below a dodgy downward pointing loose block. I avoided that and then found myself reaching/popping for a good flake (is this the juggy flake?) and some welcome gear. Is this the line? It also sounds like I missed the described thread. It was an adventure.....

4th time up this one. I think it is now spoilt slightly by the flake at the top which is starting to sound so hollow that I now neither put gear behind it or even pull on it, making the traverse left quite a runout crux relative to the rest of the route. I would be very wary of placing any kind of gear behind the flake - certainly no cams.

Really pleased with this lead, my route finding may have been a bit off and was affected by the seepage. That and the greasy rock coupled with me finding HVS a tough grade meant this felt tough. Super happy with the lead.

First single pitch HVS lead (somehow managed to do multi pitch HVS first). Great climb, loads of positive holds and protection, almost consistently nice and enjoyable moves, nothing too strenuous but reasonably long and delicate in places. At the top of VS 4c, bottom HVS 5a depending if this type of climbing suits you.

Absolutely stunning route, loved it. Seemed easy HVS to me, but not VS. Pretty much straight up, my old guidebook made it sound more wandering than it felt.

The lefts and rights mentioned in the route description are slight - the route is not far from being straight up. The best-known of the climbs hereabouts, but not the best IMO - not the strongest line on the slab, and with a suspect large flake.

A little bit confused with the route finding based on the new guide. Think I ended up at one point on the pedestal on Bitter Battle Tears before traversing back to the right place... Several distinctly tricky moves. Whatever, it was an excellent route, loved the pocket traverse I had to do (above the peg on the E3) to get to the second 'flake'.
