Brilliant route that I think is easily missed! Feels a little stiff at the top to start with! But as the guide says... Keep left.

Much better than it looks from the ground. First slab is quite interesting. Found the upper section fairly bold and thin.

Alex Thompson - 2nd O/S - 08/Apr/12 with Vix, JonnyO

First attempt at a HVS, found myself in a pile on the ledge after psyching myself out of the crux.

There are plenty of gear placemnets just beneath the crux section. I managed to place a cam and a nut. Also, there is gear in the slab on the way up, although only at about half height. The bottom slab is much easier than the upper crux section.

Mild with only on tricky move just below the top.
Chris Craggs - 2nd - 28/Aug/11 with Graham Parkes

Chose not to lead due to the silly death ledge!!! Think I was wise, complicated crux with serious decking potential...
Oliver Houston - 2nd - 15/Jun/11

Be warned the top section is hard and you will deck if you fall off! I pretty much got rescued..

Another nice route. Was up and down to the ledge at the top a few times then when I finally committed to the move I was drawn out onto the arete and put my foot out onto the next route for a second. Was still a hard move and wasn't straight forward - will have to try and stay on the face next time to see how much I cheated...

Committed in the wrong position at the top and made it feel stiff as I overstretched. Nothing to do with the hangover honest ;-)

Felt easy for 5a, but you're going to hit the big ledge if you come off the crux. Committing but rewarding stuff, worthy of a star.
victim of mathematics - Lead O/S - 18/Oct/09 with Rich Cole

First HVS; possibly not the best choice. Bold at the bottom and top. Crux at the top above the gear. You won't fall far, but you will hit something. Thankfully (or unfortunately for the quality of the route) you can check out those crux moves first and reverse to the ledge, and similarly, it's also very escapable. Gets a star for having proper face climbing above gear (plus it's a John Allen route(!))

5a move low down then a hard 5a/5b move on the upper face.

This climbs nicely. Frictious rock, two mini run-outs, above slightly fiddly gear: the top one (crux) is above a ledge to add some spice,
