Rosebud in June** HVS 5a
[Starting out on Rosebud, 3 kb]Sustained and pleasant climbing with a well-positioned top crack. The first 9m are not well-protected. Start at a good nut belay just right of a narrow chimney. Photo opposite. 26m. Move up a flake-crack and take the wall above to a move right into a triangular niche. Climb to the next horizontal break, step left, and follow the delightful face-crack to the top. © ROCKFAX

Very good indeed, sustained.
Hamish777 - 2nd O/S - 29/Jul/14 with Andrea

Brilliant route and so much better than you would imagine as you stare at the mossy crag from the bottom! Plenty of gear.

Saw a snake covered in diamonds on the way in. Rushed the route to get to the Tinner for tea only to find they only served posh grub!!!

thomasaneurinsmith - 2nd O/S - 01/Jul/11 with Stuart Reeves

Maybe it's given HVS due to being relatively high above gear for hardish move lower down? The rest is definitely VS though.
stuaart - Lead O/S - 01/Jul/11 with Thomas Smith

As good as they come and good gear throughout, easier than Royal Forrester though - VS 4c.
