Rockfax Description
The long crack that is the major feature of the buttress proves to be an awkward customer and quite high in the grade. A slippery layback or awkward jamming start (5a?) leads to a tricky wide section off the ledge and another wide section to enter the upper crack. Escape out left at the top or move right for the extended reach of the short Direct Finish, HVS 5a. © Rockfax

First route of the day! Tricky for VS but I've only led one HVS in the past so who am I do say?! Bit of a struggle all the way up but felt in control all the way up, at no point was I going to fall off and most of the way up it was safe as houses anyway! Actually found the upper off-hand crack the hardest bit to enter. Started off by jamming left hand, and laying back and reaching up and laybacking/jamming the first bit until I walked my left foot onto the foothold on the left, rebalance myself and step up onto the ledge. Placed two cams high at full stretch which looked bomber and grabbed the high hold on the right and stepped up and over into the niche and grabbed the back of the chockstone. Took a few attempts to work out how to get into the top crack, eventually afte a few attempts I stepped up and over with my left hand behind the chockstone, and leaned to the right gastoning with my right hand and stepped up, then a high cupped hand jam and your in, couple more cupped hand jams and your at the top, step out left on the slab and mantleshelf reaching high onto the break and sort yourself out. Brilliant, deffonately worth its 3 star status!
