seemed very easy, after climbing some quite hard sport

Low in the grade, but the step right onto the face feels quite committing.

My first HVS, having only climbed up to severe before - felt easy really, apart from the step across onto the face at the top. Got my first use of the micro nuts at last!
The Norris - Lead O/S - 24/Jul/12 with Gem

Only HVS if you don't have any micros. Took a good selection and laced it up. The top move took some commitment and was worth 5a.

Did during a sightseeing 'non-climbing' visit :) Plenty of micro nut protection thats solid. Didnt find the big top jug on the right to start with and topped out on the upper bolts instead of going over the top as we were pushed for time. Not sure if the route is supposed to be a top out or bolt finish??

VS 4c unless you move out onto the face

_m.cox_ - Lead O/S - Jun/08 with Robyn Nelson

Jordan led first. gear placements were good, three micro wires sitting nicely and a silver Wild Country rock. Tried too hard on the crux. It's only an HVS for f*** sake. Lobbed off trying to make it an E2, before finding the massive jug out to the right. A ten ft drop onto the rock was my first outdoor fall, the gear held and after collecting my wits, (what few of them I still have left), went up it without a problem, (except getting the rock out).

easier climbing than 5a, and plenty of placements if you have lots of micros... just not too sure how many would have held!
