This is definitely harder than HVS the top is quite insecure and the climbing up to it is very sequencey . Lovely route great moves nice and reachy with good movement in between features with nice height to add spice. best route of the day

Nipped over and did this before dashing home having failed to regain West Side highpoint. #frustrating

After a lot of effort got to the first break, but had no appetite to go further

Messed about with the first move, fun enough. Didn't have a clue beyond that.

What's it all about removing the trad grade for this route. It's much more highball that Spider Crack right next to it and about as safe. Lovely moves, about E1/5c in my book and at that grade, I know what I'm talking about.

Felt a bit scary at the top, especially as i did it without the right hand side crimp above the break. Makes it more interesting though.

Did the hard moves but traversed off at second break as full of green slime

scary top moves

Finally got it without doing the rockover from the scab - just undercut the break and walk feet up very carefully. Short person technique maybe. Top section was still rather worrying.
