22m. A good expedition that possesses a lot of interesting and varied climbing, and a test of jamming ability on the first pitch. Start on a block ledge 5m right of Hydraulic Arete.. 1) 10m. Move up the initial wall past diagonal breaks and then up steeper ground via some deep vertical cracks to a ledge. Move right along the ledge to a belay below a wide chimney.. 2) 12m. Climb up the left wall of the chimney and stride over to the main tor on the other side of the chimney. Traverse right under an overlap until it is possible to pull up onto the summit. © ROCKFAX

Rather undergraded - gaining the belay is actually harder than it looks - perhaps Severe 4a would be a better indication of the feel of the route. The top part is very easy though.

Um, I had a bit of an epic. Traversed far too far left and ended up on the middle section of the HVS! Whoops. Felt tough in the grade, which is why I sorted a different route. Probably made it harder but, ah well.

HHmm first pitch is a little stiff for VD!! not a lot of gear from what i could find ( maybe im just rubbish :)but climbs well, shame you have to make it into two pitches as the rope drag would be horrible to do it in one!:)very easy top pitch to the top :)

Finding routes at HT is a nightmare... the guide description doesn't fit at all! But I think this is what I did... nice awkward move through the bulge is the only hard bit, but all in a nice situation.
