From the shallow cave feature make steep moves through the bulge, using a finger pocket and side pull just left, to gain an in situ thread and good holds (a lower in situ thread to the left on The Huntly Blues can be clipped as a side runner). Move up and finish rightwards.

The route can be climbed starting further left at HVS 5a. Start as for The Huntly Blues and climb to a good sidepull (this is higher and slightly further left than the one mentioned above). Span right for the second in situ thread to join the main route.

By the more direct line (but using the small thread to the left as a side runner).

Crack above thread was wet, so no holds / gear in there. Big reach to jugs above then unprotected dismal grass/rubble-y mantle....

A bit pumpy with some nice moves, shame about the awful grassy top out.

Took about 3 goes to get the strenuous move worked out. The thread held fine on my initial failures. Felt good finally pulling up & through. Beware the grim loose vegetated "mantel" type finish tho!

This is a strenuous little climb. thought there were going to be some jugs where the thread is but nothing i would call juggy. very worthwhile little climb though

:-) Feels good to have led this one .. dusty, reachy start and then put your foot down to get over the crux.

Didnt like the look of the tat so top roped it. Nice and smooth .. easy enough to get to the big flake just need good footwork.

Looks like it might be comitting to clip the thread, but feels solid when you go for it.
