5c Wall** V1 5b / f5
[Mossie on "Scary Wall" f6a+ - Hound Tor, 3 kb]5m. Originally graded 5C by the Old School, many say this is technically easier but it was probably deservedly given this grade as the Old School Guys thought it was a big wall to boulder. If you make your way around the Granite Block right of Aerobic Wall you will find a neat, steep problem straight up the centre of the wall with a few horizontal breaks. The crux is low but dont fall off the top. About HVS 5b to lead or solo.

nice! Static start is the hardest bit, followed by not panicking at the top!

Either a micro trad route or boulder problem depending on whether you have mats or not, which in this case I didn't
