Neat technical moves at the start. Good climbing in an attractive position.

Lots of confusion between the CC Guide and Rockfax. CC has Breakingwind to the left of Sunset Boulevard, Rockfax the other way round. We did the left had line which fitted the description of a 'series of mantleshelves'. Never E1. HVS 4c would be generous.

Difficult to find the right line, one hard move to get the break and then rock over. Tried to stay away from the arete as much as possible

Second HVS. Only had one set of and ran out of small ones. Ran it out to the massive ledge. Awesome but it felt easy for HVS.

Went out left on the traverse first basically the first move out to get on the face from the cave then straight up from there, then a bit right to the bottom end of the left slanting diagonal flake and two short but deep cracks in the middle of the face, straight on up the mantle shelfs. Is this right who knows! lot of confusion around this slab, ( E1 i think I agree with other comments looks like it is direct from cave as it looks to be pretty poor pro, until you get to the two deep cracks in the middle of the face)

Was my first HVS lead, chose this as I had just climbed Sea mist so decided that If I got stuck i could escape out left to the arete. Lovely climb

nice climbing, slate-esque

According to RockFax this is a HVS 5a, I couldn't even get off the start. While doing Pink'un I could see there is precious little gear or holds. This can't be HVS 5a, previous comments about the confusion in the CC guide book etc. seem to bear this out.

Didn't like the lack of protection at the start so top roped. Having climbed it and looked at it I had started on the E1 5b, so kinda explains a lot. The actual start is a lot better but further left, you need to traverse out onto it but not quite as far as sea mist. Kicking my self for not leading it now I know where the start is.

Misha 07/Oct/06 Lead O/S

The CC guidebook is confusing. The climb directly up from the cave pillar must be the E1 'Breaking Wind'(poor gear low down where it matters, so wimped out), whereas 'Sunset Boulevard' must go up on the left hand side of the slab just to the right of 'Sea Mist'. Higher up it does not really matter as the slab soon gets easier.

with Mark
twodada 09/Sep/06 Lead O/S

No holds and no protection. is this really HVS 5a! Traveresed left and up on flake, then traversed right back finsihed stright up. I therby 'missed' what was probably the crux.
