Gypsy Moth*** VS 4c
[Gypsy Moth - Embsay Classic., 2 kb]Absolutely classic line up the narrow south side of the most prominent buttress overlooking the reservoir. Follow the crackline jamming or laybacking past a couple of breaks to the large break below the bulging overhang. Swing left in a fine position and around the arete to the small ledge. Finish directly above the ledge passing a horizontal slot to rounded flutings and the top. Very photogenic on a summer evening!

Magic. Soft HVS or hard VS, you decide. Cracks full of sharp "teeth"!
