Rockfax Description
Delicate and a bit bold but not E1. Climb the crack to a ledge then move left and balance up the ramp (tiny wires and cams out left). Finish up the chimney behind the huge perched block. © Rockfax

If you find the cam out left, which let's be honest is not difficult, this climb is a middling to low end HVS. Fina (HVS 5b) was substantially harder that day...

Tom had pointed out that there was gear to the left in a break below a bulge. By the time I started the route, I had forgotten which break he had been talking about and simply assumed that it was the large break after the initial crack. Stuffed a cam in and didn't bother looking for any more gear until the obvious nut slot above the crux. Felt quite run out, though easy. Actually there is another break below a bulge right next to the crux! Not sure it's really E1 with that. Still, a nice climb. Su struggled with a couple of moves in the crack due to lacking reach but otherwise fine.
