Move off the ledge was quite punchy, followed by some reachy moves.

The midges gave me the inspiration to make the 5b move and finish this climb.

What a fantastic climb. I though I was going to really struggle as it is quite reachy but just one move gave me pause for thought, the rest was just lovely slab climbing. Loved it.

charley 05/Jun/14 Lead O/S

Not sure I did the correct start (bridged too far back?). Real nice moves on the slab above though.

Sweet couple of moves in the top half, 2* if it wasn't for the ledge.

Very nice, the bridging looks unlikely from the floor but isn't too bad and definitely not as wide as wuthering. Rest of the route is typical stanage break to break climbing. Fun

Ollie took the adjacent Severe line. I took the HVS line.

Top section seemed v. blank and had flared breaks with poor cam placements, therefore wimped out and finished easily on right.
