Rockfax Description
A stunning classic following an impressive line of cracks up the steep wall. Climb the tough crack, past the tree stump, and jam onwards to an optional stance in the Bower. Move out right and climb the wall on finger holds then a crack to a niche. Layback the crack on the left to the final overhang and finish with gusto. © Rockfax

βeta: Rockfax have downgraded more routes around HVS than upgraded I reckon. I did it one long pitch, seemed no reason nto to other than to have a rest. Accordingly I got pumped silly and had to rest about 10 feet below the start of the top layback flake. The crux is only hard 5a I reckon if you can jam, but its still very very top end for the grade, and theres probably another 5a btit at the end of the traverse. Amsoutely awesome route though.

I led P2 which is quite steep, feels exposed and fairly sustained moves but with a decent rest at the niche. Sandbagged ourselves a little by not taking enough large gear, over-faffed at the final ledge thinking the final 1-2m crack looked nails! A solid and great 3* route *thumbs-up*

Dan Radford 20 Apr, 2018 Lead dog First HVS and felt like a total sandbag although probably had at least something to do with being unpracticed at laybacking. Had no less than two instances of 'oh my god holds' as a result and took a long and awkward rest in the shallow cave just before climbing around onto the final overhanging moves. Finishing with gusto and a beautiful sunset behind. Did in one pitch, wouldn't recommend a belay in the bower as awkward but a good rest at least and time to talk to yourself. Totally pumped to pieces by the end.

Jay Schofield 7 Aug, 2015 2nd dog Luke led clean, I had a bit of an epic mare on this one. Cleaned gear until close to the tree at p1, didn't want to commit to taking a nest of gear out, bottled the potential of a hefty swing out right, ab'd down. Then realised I'd need to get up to the tree belay anyway as I didn't want Luke to lose his gear. At this point I had no choice but climb up the route directly under the belay to get there, which was a harder bloody grade anyway. Once at the tree I regained sanity and decided to climb p2. Many lessons learnt on this one. But what an outstanding route! Wow.

Steve Waters, Mynydd 22 May, 2012 AltLd Led P2. 23 degrees C at 7pm supplemented by nervous excitement meant the P1 jam crack was a sweaty struggle - just reached the jug at the top before my hands slipped out. P2 was superb. Managed to lie flat on my back in the niche whilst fiddling with and extending gear! It felt steep and looked even steeper as I looked down at Mike from the belay at the top. Huge respect to Mr Harding and Ms Lee.

Sam1991 8 Apr, 2009 AltLd Dan P1, Me P2. Well done to dan for getting up the first pitch. tough moves, but good gear. 2nd pitch is mega pumpy, and i found it pretty scary. Gear is good as long as you have the energy to place it. Good rests in between pumpy sections, still very glad to get to the top, and happy to have done it clean. Quality route, best enjoyed from the top belay, watching your second endure the pump :D
