Quoin* HS 4a

Rockfax Description
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

Very enjoyable, felt steep (both physically and in terms of "spice") at the grade - wouldn't want to be leading this if I were "only just" an HS climber. Harder than some VS in the area.

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

Direct up the arete at about HVS 5a - stunning.

Nice lead by dan!
saz_b - 2nd O/S - 30/Jun/13

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

Hard for HS4a if you go up the groove at the top.

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...

Hoyes - 2nd O/S - 29/Sep/11 with Dave C, David K

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!
