The Easy HS 4b
[The easy, 2 kb]8m. A deceptive route - looks very easy, but a couple of interesting moves to keep you on your toes. Fairly enjoyable climbing on loose rock, with marginal gear. The climb can be made easier by climbing slightly to the right of a bay, but going straight up makes it more fun.

Ticklists: Cheltonian Road to HVS ruins.

Terrible trad route. Not bad for top roping. If only it was solid rock. Seriously poor gear. The two (bad) bits behind rocking blocks were put in just to keep partner from panicking. Brought up two seconds.
