Suncrush** HVS 5b
The shallow groove 20ft left of Cadillac leads easily to a small alcove beneath the flake. Layback to glory and an easier finish.

Found this very strenuous in parts, struggled to get up over the flake without a rest!

HVS 5a in my opinion. Cracking route.

Felt it to be a very tough HVS.

Very sustained HVS 5a in my book. Enough gear to place before comitting to the layback which I found fairly easy and it definitely didn't feel 5b (in perfect conditions). Lovely route and well protected.

Found it quite tricky getting up to the niche? The layback and head wall are great fun. Good quality rock, good protection and nice features. I thought this was a really enjoyable climb.

Ran quickly back up on top rope to retrieve gear from the top. Started up the little wall to the left, which was nice and scarcely any harder than the slightly awkward normal start (although probably less protectable - didn't look too closely).

Only 5a climbing, but quite sustained around the crux so HVS seems fair.

Really nice route. Very well protected and never really harder than 5a.
Andrew Sloan - Lead O/S - 18/Aug/12 with Tim

Brilliant. Not as hard as I thought it would be. Laybacking section was barely 5a, although I found getting to the alcove slightly harder. It would be pretty straight forward if you powered through without placing gear during the layback.

great moves all the way, especially the layback sequence round the flake. you just have to ignore the fact that one day that flake will fall down, hopefully not with climber attached.
msoldn - Lead O/S - 03/Sep/11 with Sam

why did i wait so long to head up there and get this climbed. excellent route. stopping on the layback to try and place some kit would be hard work. 3 stars. not sure about 5b too
