Perseus* HVS 5b
[A direct on Perseus, FA, 3 kb]22m. Given a spring clean in March 2015 and now OK to take on. An excellent 'knee-trembling' quarried limestone special with a spicy crux, recommended for enthusiasts of the genre. Moderator suggests E1. Nick White guide description of the pitch is adequate, although the first peg mentioned is missing; however the borehole takes an upturned large wire instead. Further up, a Tricam 1.5 is a satisfactory replacement for the "slot in peg". The antique peg just before the crux has been doubled up with a new one. Note that the foot ledge that you rock up onto is almost level with the pegs.
(Not even the slightest bit of polish on it, ignore the comment below).
