The Hustler** HVS 5a

Rockfax Description
Another good route, that takes a hidden corner, at the extreme end of what is considered Main Cliff.
1) 5a, 20m. Traverse left just above sea level and move round the arete. Head on, making a hard move past a steep groove, and continuing across the wall to belay at the base of a large corner.
2) 5b, 38m. Climb the crack just to the right of the corner to a small ledge. Move up for a couple more metres until you can move left into the main chimney above the overhang. This leads to the ledge and spike belays a few metres back.
3) 30m. Traverse right across the grassy ledge to a spike often slung with a rope.
4) 35m. As for Nightride P4. © ROCKFAX

Accidentally soloed first low traverse pitch (bit pumpy with a rope on my back!) - then couldn't work out where 1st pitch went from the guide, (having already done it) so just climbed the obvious crack - which was of course the right route, and it was brilliant!

This is an excellent climb, definately 5b, as the guidebook says.
