Quartz HVS 5a

Rockfax Description
This follows the shallow scoop in the slab left of Silica, gained by a short wide crack - delicate and poorly protected. A variation start up the arete of block in front of the route is also possible at about the same grade. © ROCKFAX

UKC Logbook Description
Climb the bottom wall of Silica until a step left onto the small pinnacle standing in front of the face can be made. Move up to the base of the right-crack in Sand Gully, step out right to a shallow corner and climb directly to the top; poorly protected

Wasn't sure of the line so eliminated the left wall and crack from the floor, felt a bit stiff this way but still HVS.
