A Mountain Journey - 2014

Fun to add some 4c direct bits on the cruxes to add spice, felt a bit rushed by bunch of tossers who were making it obvious I was taking my time... I hate people who do that, I got there first, they should toddle off and find another route. Plenty of protection if you look

Very easy for the grade but there isn't much good gear..

BETA ALERT. The crux section is very bold if you don't find the solitary piece of gear that protects it. When standing on the ledge atop the quartz blob, there is a tiny vertical slot about chest height which won't take gear. Immediately below it, and hard to spot, you can get a good Wallnut 5 lying flat on the rock (i.e. at 90 deg to ordinary position). Otherwise you're probably 15ft above your last runner.

Might be VS 4c if finished direct? Otherwise very easy for the grade.

4b climbing on lovely rock. More gear than appears at first glance.
Ann S - Lead rpt - 24/Oct/10 with Adam

Not as good as it looks, though wasn't sure of the line to take at the top (where you move right to avoid the cracks). Also, no more than MVS 4b, possibly even HS 4a.

Lovely rib/arete line but overgraded at VS 4c. More like HS4b. Nevertheless well worth doing.
Ann S - 2nd - 27/Jun/09 with Adam

Nice climb, soft touch for VS 4c, felt more HS 4b. Could do with more traffice to clean it up a bit, deserves 1 star - a nice line.
Neil Pacey - Lead O/S - 05/Apr/09 with Tanya Savage

I think I'd better lead this VS before it gets downgraded!!
