Songline HVS 5a
[Richard Mardell about to commit to the last moves of 'Songline' HVS 5 at Luckey Tor, 3 kb]35'. Start to the R of OR, at the base of an open-book corner beneath a long crack in an OH. Climb the corner to the OH and jam out along this using footholds on the R wall. Pull in to the next crack leading to another OH. Hard moves past this lead to a hanging corner crack, which is climbed direct to finish.

Fell at the second overhang before. Got it this time with some strong moves on good jams. Dirty top out but deserves a star.
