Finally got to finish it 2 years after backing off the top section, and still tricky. One of the best HVS in this section - varied climbing with some spice.

Climbing as good as the other HVSs on the same wall but just spoilt by the opportunity to bridge into the grotty cave at the start as one climber couldn't resist, no real need to as so juggy

Enjoyed this route. Doing it the right way, it is a hard 5a, if not 5b at the end. Of course, a wavy line makes it a 5a...

Good, but very run out for the crux top section. Realising my shoe lace had come undone halfway through the crux section added to the sense of achievement.

No way it's 5a. Never in a million years. Most of it it is a ladder climb. The top a bit harder but still there are no 5a moves.

Hooo 26/May/13 Lead O/S

Might have been a bit off route in the middle, as I never found the thread mentioned in the book. Had to psyche up for the crux at the top on slopers above gear. Not hard, but needs confidence.

Rick Ashton 12/May/12 2nd O/S

Another belting route.

mullermn 15/Apr/12 Lead O/S

Nice climb. The start is the hardest bit in my opinion.. tricky and powerful few moves which take you up moderately high before you have a comfortable rest from which to place gear. Was warned about the sloper-y run out at the top by another party on it, but I didn't really find it that notable.

good little climb, love the pocket pulling, slightly run out mid climb. though that was the crux then ran into the sloping holds which is a nice little sequence above the gear. Nice....

Hmm, poorly protected 5b crux... Probably more of a 'line' than other routes on the slab.

Wilbur 29/Mar/09 Lead O/S

I suspect that anyone who voted soft HVS for this didn't go directly up the blank wall near the top. Super committing hard 5a crux move with distant gear surely equals E1..
