60m, 4 pitches.

Rockfax Description
A string of superb and intense pitches make up for the rather wandering line. High in the grade. Start at a thin line of weakness in the wall just right of the low-angled corner groove.
1) 4b, 10m. Climb the wall and thin cracks directly to a tricky exit onto a large belay ledge next to a thorny bush.
2) 4b, 12m. Take a good crack in a corner to a roof at its top and pull around this on the right to another good belay ledge.
3) 6m. Walk left along a narrow grassy ledge to a belay below a thin black seam, as for Venusburg.
4) 4c, 18m. Move up right to the base of a steep corner and climb this with difficulty to a horizontal break that can be followed rightwards across the wall to a belay on its edge.
5) 4b, 8m. Move up left to a break and climb the thin crack above to finish. © Rockfax

Brilliant route with a long, fierce layback crack. Led P1 and P2 in one go, Denise led the P3 traverse, led P4 and built a belay just after the awkward mantle, then got Denise to lead the final couple of meters to the top. Not a route for a new VS leader as it's high in the grade and you've got to have your head firmly screwed on for the crux pitch.

That is where I fell off in leading Andres in trainers previous year. I found it to be desperate 5b movers followed by 5a/4c moves - no wonder I couldn't do it in big boots.

RockaJo 07/Apr/12 AltLd O/S

I led the first pitch and was very pleased- my first VS after a 1 year break from climbing. There were a couple of moves where I felt worried about slipping / falling but got past them and felt very satisfied- a success! Tom led the rest of the route. The 4th pitch was a monster! The hardest VS I've ever climbed and felt much more like a HVS! A very strenuous and scary layback all the way up to a footless, hard mantle at the start of the 5th pitch. Very hard!
