the top bit of the crack looked distinctly hard for HS - more like VS? I came right to the flake and climb up from there. Prob off route.

Given HS in my guide this is a definite starred VS! A great route despite my failure on the top move of the crag and having to lower back on my Super rock and eventually abandon it. What a struggle even on a top rope. Its a toughie for the short and feeble.

lead 2nd pitch. Matt moved right on the 1st pitch away from the crack for an interesting eliminate with some interesting awkward moves. top crack is gorgeous.

one of the best climbs i've ever done, defo harder than HS, more like VS 4b, myself and another team thought we'd been on a completely different route, as the guidebook descriptions were dire..

One of the best unstarred routes I've done. Pitch 1 is nice but pitch 2 is GREAT, but the finishing moves are a bit challenging for HS.
