Absolute stunner - grinned from ear-to-ear all the way up. Too much gear to warrant HVS, some great technical crack climbing for the grade. Best VS I've done by far as it stands.
chrisweight - Lead O/S - 07/Sep/14 with snook, Henry Forrester

What a stunning route - great crack climbing on bomber gear all the way. Best VS done to date. Sunny day, blue skies and climbing with your mates. Perfect. Not keen on the rope scramble down to the ridge though - that freaked me out way more than the climb for some reason!

I did this sometime in the early '80s and thought it was a challenge then, it still is! No praticularly hard moves, though in the middle where the crack becomes too thin to use is the most interesting! It did keep making me think all the way though; had to get my feet sorted out.

hangon - Lead O/S - 02/Jul/11 with Jo

Excellent climbing. Top end VS, in fact harder than some HVSs that I've done. Thought Holly would be ok on this as it's on a slab but she couldn't do the crux (I suspect she didn't trust the small smeary holds), so had to pull her up (she pulled on one rope while I took in the other - have never had to do that before but it worked well). Otherwise she did it fine if a bit slowly, though she stuggled with the final jamming crack.

due to stepping in a puddle of seawater beforehand and solvents on my soles the day before, i slipped thrice and dogged it. then i got to a friend and got it inverted by accident it took me a fair 15 minutes of pushing and yanking. follow the distinct crack left of Urizen
