Its not polished, try climbing at avon gorge! Despite this, it did feel like a battle with several crux moves. Awesome route, even better when you know how to jam :D

One rest, though a massive improvement over last years effort, top half is way more interesting when you're pumped silly from the bottom!

3*** brilliantNess when looking at the polish it make u think. O this is gunna be fun... but it never spoilt the climb I thought. First route of the day and I walked up it. Bridge when u can and place bomber gear. Loved it.

Feet slipped off a smear with my hands on the finishing holds. Talked myself out of taking a dangerous looking lob (gear quite low). Phew.

Jumped on this as my warm up climb for the day (slightly optimistic?). Initial section is pumpy as hell because of the polish, I didn't trust a single hand or foothold for the first 5m it was that bad. Once past that the route gets easier the higher up it gets (seems to be a feature of this crag?). Gear was generally good. Ace route!

Aaron Lines - 2nd - 17/Aug/14 with frank ramsay

Excellent. Thought the start was the hardest bit and the rest was good juggy crack climbing with perfect gear. Not as polished as people make out and certainly makes it no harder or detracts from the climbing.
Graeme Hammond - Lead O/S - 13/Aug/14 with Becky E

Hard climb. Polished crack. My dog barked and barked when I was half way up and people arrived and stopped right next to us. We had had the cliff to ourselves all day at that point. Wished they had moved on, in a panic to let Assad calm the dog down, I rested on a nut that came out when the large flake it was behind moved a few mm. I fell about 9m and was just caught enough to hit the ground gently at the end of rope stretch. Teaches me to trust to minimal levels of protection on this kind of rock! The rock can move... I want to come back.

Lead this with rests and on pre-placed gear. Very pumpy and a lot of jamming. Will be a project to fully trad lead clean. Bottom of the crack a bit slimy and wet.

My first HVS second, second time ever climbing!
annabel hodges - 2nd dog - Nov/06 with Jon Bleiker

Lower section is quite thin and has some serious polish on a critical foothold. Slipped a couple of times, then actually popped off. Quite thin hand jams at the bottom even though it does ease up to around 5a. Hard for the grade!
