Brys* HVS 5a
41m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
A pleasant route, but bold in places. Best enjoyed as one long pitch, or take the optional belay and move into Eagle Finish at the top.
1) 5a, 44m. Start below the centre of the white slab and climb up through a small overlap on good incut holds to reach the quartz-covered slab. Head up aiming for the groove at half-height (optional belay in Asahel on the right). Move up the groove and continue up the slab until forced right into Asahel, follow this back left and up to the ledge.
2) 7m. As for Africa Rib. © ROCKFAX

Why does this route not get 3 stars. Awsome, scary going threw the roof though only gear at the start of the roof, if you fall on the lip splat long way down thats why it should get E1 5a. At the top of the route all my beer nearly came back up but lots of wooping to good cutting loose on overhang lip
Dale - Lead O/S - Mar/11 with johny

Tried to climb as one pitch but belayed under the overhang. Tried the roof on the lead and p***ed to find i was 2 inches from a bomber hold!
