Previously backed off (14/Jun/2017) after getting the good gear in the groove but the climbing directly up the arête in terrible conditions and bailing at the peg off route but 2nd clean after Chris took over. Good to get back on and lead properly, hard and fairly bold at E1 must be a real sandbag in old guides at HVS as is close to if not E2.

Great atmospheric pitch, pretty go-ey on the gear for E1?

A real wimp - got served a top-rope from a friendly couple to cope with the overhanging heather top-out. Very dirty but possibly quite good?
