Middle section is easy climbing but pretty dodgy. Tested a large-toaster-sized block and it nearly fell out, so Chris trundled it on second. Final corner was a desperate run out to the top. Found it v strenuous and there's no way I was stopping to place gear. Maybe I'm just unfit.

Scary for beleyer. Very loose in the middle. Removed big block but there's still lots of loose flakes. Be careful

Awful, does not deserve a star. Lots of loose rock, the belayer should wear a helmet and shelter under the gentle overhang. Easy climbing but felt so dangerous I bailed. One of the worst climbs I ave ever done.

Lots of climbing around to recover gear leader placed. Good traverse half way up

A bit wet at the bottom, so had an early fall. Loose rock in the middle and wet again at the top so did my head in and took ages. Not my finest hour.

Having "slid off" this in the mid-1990s, I expected to cruise it. Wrong! Loose low down, & the top bit is very challenging - harder than most Shorncliff HVSs. Had to reverse twice & get my head together before committing to the final moves. VS 4c? Really?

a stuck cam, fading light and ridiculous under grading made this a bit of a nightmare. treat with caution if this is at the top of your grade, it gets harder as you go up.

Just! Found the top section v.hard for the grade.

Hard at the top... Very poor rock quality (hollow, loose), and not the nicest exit...
But a stunning view from the top. great belay.

A rude awakening upon my return to these sort of grades. Not too bad, but the last corner took a bit of effort.
