At the point of announcing 'going to friction smear the slab and dyno for the break' remembered route is HS. Had completely missed the easy access to the chipped holds. Looked back, found, and route seemed accurately graded. Glad I didn't test that smear. Awesome and unforgettable.

Climbed the start of the last pitch of A climb to place a runner under the roof - without this a slip from the chipped slab would be extremely serious! Even with the runner it's P3 rather than P2. And probably closer to VS 4b than HS 4a. Good though!

Used this as an alternative finish to A Climb. Very exposed with a big swing if you come off. Easy finish though. Great combo of routes for first attempt on grit at Ilkley.
