Cornish Reprieve* HVS 5a
[A fine set of nuts! 3rd belay, Cornish Reprieve, 3 kb]An exciting outing that covers the entire main face of Devil's Rock. Start up P1 of Vineyard to tree belay. Traverse R around arete (climbed by Leviathan) and continue across Vala and onto Central Groove. Downclimb Central Groove to the thread belay. Traverse R across the blank wall to a small ledge on the arete (dodgy peg here-back it up). The peg has now gone, its remains are visible. make a rising traverse R across irregularly traveled ground until the bollard belay of Gideon in reached (this is the crux pitch). From here move R into the V-groove of Climbers Club, and then out again on big hold to the tree belay of Route B. Continue up Route B to finish at the highest point of Devil's Rock.

Very Nice, Did p1,p3,p5. The 5a Pitch was spot on, didnt think it was harder, confidence and ability to be in precarious places helps.
