Nothing Much* HVS 5b
[Pete styling through an awkward bit on Nothing Much (HVS 5a) at Pordenack, with the overhangs of Cain to the left., 3 kb]

Rockfax Description
A meandering but worthwhile and well-protected pitch. Start at a narrow corner below a bottomless groove under the mid-height overhang.
Climb the corner, step left and move up the bottomless groove to the overhang. Move right with difficulty to clear the overhang and climb the crack and wall on the left to below the capping overhang. Join Wrist Climb to finish. © ROCKFAX

Nice climb with an airy finish. Move around the roof isn't too hard, but getting established under the roof was a little tricky! Easier than the alleged VS "Friends" next to it!
