A worth while climb with an awkward entertaining start leading to a chossy finish. Now re-climbed at HVS. Massive rock fall must have altered the route during construction of EICA and the M8.

Fine until 1/2 way through the crux where it all went wrong. Very loose block on this too.

Found this rather hard. Crux felt very precarious, perhaps some ability to jam would help?

Now possible (with care) to use the lower-off on Peashooter and avoid the loose upper half.

fun climbing up to the ledge. cruddy from there.

The two cams at the layback crux got stuck so got pretty pumped whilst trying to get them out. Straightforward after this section.

blocky fun. few loose flakes a the bottom and a biscuit topout (best to step to the right i think)
Dr Toph - Solo O/S - 15/Mar/12

Not even close to HVS 5a... Maybe VS 4b/c. Loads of gear. Nice climb, I'm assuming there must have been some rockfall that's eased it up a bit?

Not E2, but maybe E1 if the initial grove is followed to its top.

okay climbing up loose flakes in the initial groove followed by a series of loose blocks and the mother of all weetabix stacks to finish = not much fun.

nice route, Def HVS
Neil Mackenzie - Lead O/S - 05/Jun/08 with Andy and Dave

Awkward at the start, scrappy to finish, def not e2 any more, but still good. Nicely de-vegetated by the cashman.
