Rockfax Description
Another superb but tough Grochan HVS. Start just to the right of the ramp-line of Kaisergebirge Wall, below an intermittent crack. Move up to the thin crack and climb the crack and wall on the left to a break. A final strenuous move up and right gains an easier groove which is followed to the belay. Abseil off. © Rockfax

The rain started as I hit the crux so rushed it a little (cue cutting loose and a frantic scramble onto the ledge), but very pleasant - would be HVS 5b on grit (and certainly no harder than e.g. Hen Cloud Eliminate). The Rockfax guide suggests that there is an ab station at the top, but there definitely is not (you have to wander over to the top of Kaisergebirge Wall), and in fact the anchor-building options were pretty crap.

Climbed up to the crack proper, placed gear, then down climbed cos I got a flash pump. Waited a bit then lead up to the crux where I got pumped at the horizontal break. Sat on gear, tried again, placed more gear, then fought to the top. Will come back and do this properly one day.

HVS 5b! First time that ive ever got properly pumped on a trad climb and had to rest. Worth it though because it was amazing climbing and im really proud to have got to the top. And lee did say it was nearer an E1...

Tough at the grade, good lead Neil. Quite pumpy and lots of 5a climbing with a bit of 5b.

a quality little testpiece, it felt like if you didnt implement technique you wouldnt get up it. the top groove somewhat spoils the route. possibly soft E1
