Rockfax Description
A shiny classic up a neat hanging groove above a hidden cave.
1) 4b, 10m. Climb a groove to reach a tree, step right then continue to another of those strange stances in a cave.
2) 5a, 28m. Enter the groove and balance up it to a roof, then swing right to follow very polished cracks in a fine position. © Rockfax

Solid at the grade if you like technical routes. The crux for me was reached at sunset! ...some way above a tiny nut, my calves screaming and the town band playing the theme music from star wars, as the riverside was lit up by the illuminations. Surreal. I had a strange feeling at the time that at the crux, this route was a harder than average 5a, but perhaps i just read the route badly, or lacked the balls to power thru quickly above my No 2 nut and avoid the calf pump!

This really is a good climb; treat 'pitch 1' as a dirty but well protected path up to the good stuff, which is all of it after the cave. Please 'do your bit' by removing a weed or two as you proceed. Is at the easy end of HVS but for me an HVS nonetheless. Loads of good gear - if you do it in one pitch(I'd recommend it) then take lots of extenders.

Led P2. Felt like a solid HVS to me but grade aside - It's a brilliant route. One of my fav leads to date. What's not to love, it's even got a cave belay. Has a couple of tricky sections & moves. I thought the hard bit would be the moves getting passed the roof but it was actually straightforward and brought some much welcomed handholds. I found the groove below to be the crux - sustained, delicate bridging all the way up with poor rests until you get past the roof. Then just as you think it's all over you get to the crack which although not hard took some thinking about... Awesome route!!! My legs are still suffering 2 days later but I'm still smiling...

I lead as one pitch and found it surprisingly hard for the grade. HVS is about right but I thought the 2 cruxes were closer to 5b. Great line though. Could be a height thing (I couldn't reach the obvious good holds) or unfamiliarity with peak limestone. Interestingly I have just read on rockfax that this route has lost holds in the groove, explaining why I definitely found it harder than VS.
