Horrible climb and definitely not VD pumpy at the bottom while trying to place gear then the mantle onto the ledge is really lose and nasty

Ritchyrich82 17/Apr/15 Lead O/S

What a horrible climb. Tough as hell. Hard to get decent gear, a bit all over the place with a tough mantle two thirds of the way up. Didn't enjoy this one! Dave brooks was my second.

Gave it a few tries the weekend before, but chickened out and downclimbed each time. Western Grit is right, it's definitely closer to Severe than VDiff.

Miserable start and got pumped trying to decide on what gear to place about 3m from the ground. Backed off it in the end. Was very dirty. Definitely not VDiff...

Rockfax says S 4a, and UKC says VD... I have climbed VS 5a's harder than this. I wonder if the description 'not really to be recommended' refers to the miss-grading or the pointlessness of the climb.

At least severe, start's a bit of a struggle, the rest is dirty.

Fell off about 7 feet up, gear ripped out, decked. Broken ankle and deep blunt impact trauma to the buttock (which bled like stuck pig). Fucking horrible start. Many thanks to all those who helped.

Harder than VDiff ! A steep start with an awkward few moves to reach the large ledge. Clean the pocket out before you move and make sure the footholds are dry.

Thought this was hard for the grade, although a nice climb. Corse, I had forgotten my shoes, so was wearing my mate's which are about 4 sizes too big.
