Rather an enjoyable climb. The traverse was delicate but straightforward and with an awkward move onto and around a bulge. The crack on the last pitch definitely deserves a 5a IMO.

For nostalgic reasons. 45 years since I last did it, at which time it was my 1st HVS. A great journey through more hostile territory

My new favourite climb.
DaveAtkinson - AltLd - 14/Jul/13 with P.Cannon

Climbed the RH slab/corner crack of the E3 5c Right called Cerberus instead of the LH slab. Progressively more difficult the higher I climbed but good gear at least. The crack was wet towards the top. Hard work bridging out of the corner and moving left to the Yellow Slab belay. Final traverse pitch felt very easy in comparison. More like 4b?

A perfect route, every pitch had loads of interest and pitch 2 a pure delight. never easy or too hard.
