<< Christmas Curry / Treemudrock Finish (aka Duff Plum Finish)
Taste Of Thunder >>
15m. Starts from the large ledge at the top of pitch 3 Christmas Curry. Take the middle of the wall to the bulge . Precarious moves rightward using finger tip pockets and a steep pull lead to the leftward trending crack. Up this moving left to a difficult finish. Not to be confused with a minor variation which starts up Lleolwyr but traverses right at 5 metres to join Taste of Thunder at the triangular niche. The line (no 32) on page 169 of the current guide is accurate and is most probably undergraded at E1 5b

Ian led first two pitches (which got us to the ledge of the last pitch for the different finishes) I started the Lleolwyr Finish, got to the crux (aprox 2m from top),rock was damp, slipped and fell 4-6m, no gear popped. Broke my ankle and wrist due to fall. We abbed 50m down, mountain rescue helped get me through woods. Will be back to finish when I can walk and eventually climb again

The HVS 5B finish isn't for the faint hearted. Poor gear on Crux and felt more like E1/E2,small finger pockets and very little for feet,however still very enjoyable.
