tried to finish at the left end of the top overhang (per guidebook photo) but couldn't get up the seemingly blank slab so went left to finish up saints progress; only noticed the crack through the overhang further right (which I assume is the usual way?) once I was belaying at the top. next time!morsy - Lead dnf - 05/May/13 with peter berwick

The slab in the middle was lovely, but Adrian had to haul me up the overhangs at start and finish so I could retrieve his gear.

Top is hard, esp when you can't actually reach the crack sufficiently to use it! Resorted to ape like moves up the face holds then used the crack once I could reach the damn thing. Nailed it, but it was blooming hard work.

graded MVS 5a in the "proper" guide; makes you suddenly think you lost your ability to climb

Bags of variety - nice slab and a couple of overhangs. Crux at bottom, top is intimidating but there are jugs (for the tall).

Ridiculous grade of Severe in the old book. This has a thuggish, reachy and unprotected 5a start, a delicate 4c middle section and a thuggish 4c finish. Blatantly HVS and 2 grades harder than Gagarin's Groove.

Labled incorrectly in guidebook, line 29 on the diagram should be line 30 Saints Arete HVS 5b. Makes more sense.

Some MVS with that jamming crack

Powerful moves required to leave the ground. The abilty to heel hook at head height seems to be an advantage. Closer to top-end HVS than MVS!
