Rap** VS 5a
[Exposure. James feeling it on the amazing pirst pitch to Rap. E5 for VS leaders..., 4 kb]

Rockfax Description
Another great VS. Start from a small ledge and stance below the centre of the half-height ledge. The first pitch feels quite bold, and the second pitch has two distinct cruxes.

1) 4c, 28m. Climb the white wall above the stance to the break. Trend up and slightly right to the next break. Above is another break with a groove that leads up to the centre of the half-height ledge.
2) 5a, 32m. From near the left-hand end of the ledge, a short steep wall succumbs to a determined start. Good holds and gear are soon reached. Move up to the break and head straight up to the next break. Shuffle left along this and then make a hard hand traverse out right to get established on the wall above. Finish up the crack, exiting left at the top to the abseil station. © ROCKFAX

The last easy climb we hadn't done on Castell Helen. Nice enough. Probably better than Pel. A slightly bold section off the middle belay ledge, exact line not obvious, though plenty of holds to choose from. Probably 1 star for the climbing and another star for the location (all the climbs on Castell Helen deserve at least one star!).

Had to rest on rope on P1 as second! Led P2 but struggled with the bold crux bit. Completely cheated at this point and protected this bit with a prussic on the ab rope that was happily there and beguilingly whispering 'use me'. Not clean.

not my finest moment to date! went off route on first pitch and had to make some committing moves a fair way above gear. Rain came in and had to escape on top rope thrown down by friends after being down there in total near on 4 hours. Rockfax give the top pitch 5a with a 'hard hand traverse' i foot traversed this and although slightly nervier was only 4c, as per ground up guide.
