Nice hexes useful. Maybe VS rather than HVS

2 committing moves on good holds. Bit soft for an HVS. Nice route though.
Hugh Simons - Lead O/S - 07/Apr/15 with Martin Crawford

First proper trad route since breaking my ankle (not counting winter), felt good! Good gear, and easy enough once the holds appear.

VS 4c, maybe 5a. Loads of gear. Never HVS 5b!
holly138 - Lead O/S - 06/Jun/13 with Tom B

Eh easy tiger, never 5b! VS 4c? Maybe knocking on the door of 5a. Beware loose rock - pity as otherwise nice climbing. Got a bit freaked at the loose rock and sat on a hex to test the rock incase I came off the move above!
