Does not include the crux for Knight's Move. Traverse was nice and the HVS finish is a much better line than the VS finish. Really nice.

An excellent route well worth doing. Very committing to start the traverse but it all works out when you do it!

The crux of knights move and still a grade easier...? very worthwhile.

deacondeacon 28/Jul/13 Lead O/S

Not a proper onsight as we had led Knights Move about 5 minutes before hand. Cool traverse (climbed over the tree as I was on a single rope and didn't want the second to have a nasty traverse.

Nice route! Good work Charley and Kev for not crying.

charley 26/Mar/12 Lead O/S

Nice climb. Spent ages faffing with the first bit of gear (bottom of the flake/groove), messing around with micro wires only to find a good hold and bomber looking wallnut placement on the next move. The traverse was nice and easy and I enjoyed the rock over move to get up and past the tree.

Charley's lead, Jack 2nd. Most awkward move was climbing over the bloody sapling :-/

Pretty easy, a bit delicate, probably takes the crux of Knights move in my opinion, plenty of gear all the way though.
