Plenty of rather big and also rather hollow flakes. Dont bother to test them, you'll just get scared. Follow the obvious diagonal line to the left of Equinox. At the point where they meet either take the left hand branch or the righthand branch, easier.

Led this as a warmup. All in all a pretty good route though hauling on the creaky flat-topped flake half-way up the route was freaky considering how much it moved. Took me a little while to commit to that but it was fine really. Think the flake might have snapped off since by the sounds of more recent ascents? (!!!)

charley 16/May/14 Lead O/S

Lovely climb. Think a very useful flake is now laying at the bottom of the route that now leaves quite a smooth section on the crux which requires some tenuous footwork. I felt I could pop off quite easily, managed to stay on but took a few goes before committing. Was my first day on slate so was probably more nervous then I should of been. Also made the mid-way section unnecessary more interesting by hand traversing the flakes. Kev & Ange used if for their feet and just walked up that bit which made more sense.

One or two big wobbly blocks, but otherwise, great. The friction on most of the slate was fantastic - and surprising

The crux is a lot harder for the short and much of the route feels like it might just fall apart. Plenty of gear but it's only as good as the rock it's in and I wouldn't have liked to have fallen on it. Great route nonetheless and the first HVS I've led that didn't feel like a soft touch.
