Superb route....finished up the wrong crack about 2 meters right of ardus but it was still lovely climbing, from the comments below seems like a more balanced and enjoyable route.

A little eliminate with the finish described but very good. Unfortunately we missed the top bit by finishing up Ardus which at the time seemed more natural.

Looking back, I think I did a mutant variation, finishing in the wrong place. Need to go back and get the right line. Probably more like HVS 5a the way I went.

What an epic pitch, great climbing in the throughout with especially tasty finish

Graeme Hammond 04/May/15 Lead O/S

Judging by the compete lack of chalk on the finishing crack I think most/all? people that day didn't do the correct finish. Then again its not obvious and is a bit artificial. Crux and best climbing is certainly on the lower wall anyway.

Enjoyed the wonderful wall climb up to the final Ardus traverse. Final crack looked longer and scarier than I remembered so did what many others before me have done and wussed out finishing straight up. Need to second it again before trying the lead again.
