Cracking Up* HVS 5a
[sunny, 3 kb]The obvious crack behind a tree, with an entertaining finish. Start on the wall just right of "Shorskred" and "Between Contracts" (bouldery to a ledge beside the tree) to avoid the minging scramble.

Very nice once you've negotiated the greenery at the bottom. Could have done without topping out on to a nettle though!

First HVS on lead :) The psychological crux for me was the move into the chimney before the top out, above gear onto rounded holds. Good variety of moves on the whole and ample opportunities for cam placements.

Recovering the route so all gear was placed up to crux at top. Very comiting airy moves at the top!!
