Quoin* HS 4a

Rockfax Description
34m. This exposed route is based on the south-west arete of the face. Expect a little crunchy rock and the odd loose flake in the upper section. Climb the easier lower section, then move a little leftwards, to finish up the left side of the upper arete. © ROCKFAX

The first route of the day. It was goey for h's I thought. Bit loose in places. Good gear when needed.

Crap, brittle rock with no good gear, huge loose blocks at the top and stiff for the grade.

Quite steep for HS but lots of gear and lovely rock. Went up the obvious corner at the top not sure if right, maybe a bit more VS that way...

If I wanted to climb friable rock with unconvincing gear I'd go to Gower. Also that steep section near the start is never 4a!
