βeta: The step up is a little tricky, but thats only due to a polished chip. There's a trick to getting established in the crack, and from there on, it's straightforward.

slab_happy 8 Aug, 2018 Lead dog Maybe the easiest-graded route I've ever had a lead fall on. At least one fall (foot popped off the super-polished foothold), one slither onto the rope, multiple tactical retreats trying to work out something other than scary laybacking to get established in the wide crack. Ultimately yo-yoed. Bloody hell.

Phil_Brock 18 Jun, 2017 Lead G/U Tried this briefly the day before but realised it was going to take too long to suss out the first moves so did a different climb instead (gallop time pressures). Returned to do it the next day. Start is very awkward, ended up laybacking the edge of the crack - assume this is what everyone else does as the wall opposite is polished as ****. Said polish makes getting up into the wider crack above quite tenuous but there is a good sling around a chockstone to protect you. Once in the wider crack it's secure offwidth climbing to the top. Grade wise not really sure... can't tell whether I did it wrong or it was just hard. Hardest moves are just off the ground but you're still around 3m up when you start getting into the wider crack which is probably where you're most likely to fall off. Felt tougher than a good few HS's I've done!
