The new Eastern Grit says this climb is a VS, which I agree with totally - it's nowhere near HVS. Nice climb though, with a good tricky start.
AndyM-LVB - Lead O/S - 20/Jul/08 with Brendan Ferguson

Hmmm getting onto the erete most definetly is the crux .. I spent long enough trying to figure it out. The wall at the top was interesting too. I had 1.5 moments when I thought I was going to fall off. My first HVS on grit :-)
