Terminator 2*** HVS 5a
[Ben on Terminator 2, 2 kb]The thinner rightward trending crack/ramp line to the right of Lakeland Cragsman.The easyest of the three classic HVS's. Head for the small 'V' shaped break in the first overlap and make a brave step up to good holds and wires. Head up to the right trending rampline with two thinner moves. Head up the well protected easy ramp to a headwalland a very shallow corner, step up to a 4a leftwards hand traverse in a great position.Best then to traverse into and finish up lakeland Cragsman.

The best of the three IMO. Never too hard, but really good moves. Slightly committing for a short section but not overly so.
