Climb the shallow groove (Rock 1 on the right) then balance left and right to the break and more wires. Finish up the right-hand groove. A traditional VS that was just a bit too bold. © Rockfax

βeta: Climbed this using the Lancs guide. Thought it seemed very bold for VS, so HVS seems about right. The gear for the crux is not great, managed to get a friend 00 to the left and a small wire to the right. The wire looked very iffy... Also some of the rock in the break is a little friable especially when wet, had a chunk come off in my hand!
