33m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
A popular route up a gear-packed corner 9m right of Ledgend that gives exhausting climbing. It has taken a lot of scalps over the years and now fully merits its HVS grade.
1) 5a, 18m. Climb a wall to gain the corner, which leads steeply to a ledge on the left, as for Ledgend.
2) 4a, 15m. As for Ledgend pitch two. © Rockfax

Richard Horn 5 Jul, 2004 Show βeta
βeta: I felt HVS 5a would be a more suitable, although low in the grade, with the one 5a move reaching up for the hold at the top of the groove. The holds are good, it just requires some commitment. Were forced to leave a No 9 rock in the crack yesterday as it has started raining, feel free to keep it if you can get it out!

βeta: I climb regular VS 4c routes at wintours leap and just starting onto HVS, found this route very hard and a bit of a suprise, thought i was having a bad day, the temp was 30+ so the rock was sweating which may have upped the grade. maybe under cooler conditions it is a VS.

Went up and down to the tricky moves a few times, thought I couldn't do it because of the slime, but then just went for it. Scary, but once you get high feet and layback hard the holds which I thought were nasty jams become good sidepulls. Very nearly fell though and had to take quite a long breather before I built the belay!

Monkey_Alan 23 May, 2010 TR Tried leading, damp in crack near the top of P1. Tried to move up several times before getting hands to the ledge and finding... nothing. Eventually feet popped off and I fell a short distance onto a good cam. Arms too pumped to try again, so got Paul & Jill to lower a top rope.

Albie 10 May, 1998 Lead dog Feeling frisky, I ignor the warnings that Swannage is 'ard. My plan to sprint to the crux but failed failed, leaving bleeding fingers from sharp rock. The crux was poorly protected with a micro-wire as I was warned off using the abandoed nut higher up. I had many attempts at the crux and many falls. Eventually I am forced to use the nut to get past but the next 2 meters remains sustained and no where to rest, so just keep going until I get to a small cave/ledge under an overhang. There I wedge myself in and have a quiet coronary. when i'd regained my breath i headed for the relatively easy top third of the climb. THis was graded as a mere VS back in '98.
