Easy but no protection in corner, not much higher up. VS 4c as in guidebook.

Small amount of seepage in the corner, but still fine.

HVS all day long, especially when it's wet! The groove is very bold, small micro cams with narrow heads needed to protect it at all.

Micro cams make the corner less intimidating. Really nice climb.

Nice. Two good micro cams in the corner (old peg placements?)

I lead pitch 1, Andy pitch 2. Gear on pitch 2 poor, crux unprotected, and gear beyond not great. Rope management a bit of fun on this route too... HVS in my book due to lack of gear on crux

So instead of taking the line under the roof, I appear to have headed onto the quartze bulge and tree of 'the chute'. I then took the left ramp after the tree and finished as per guide book. Nice route!

Thought this quite tough for VS, HVS seems fairer as very bold up the groove (which was wet which didn't help). Also continued direct at the end rather than moving left which has some nice moves but is not VS either! Fun route whichever way you go, but don't listen to the person saying their is tons of gear, there isnae much!

Guidebook said this was a VS4c so had a crack at it. Stopped about 15m up as nerves had gone.

Only 1 hard move. Its VS in my guidebook. Definately not HVS. Found gear a plenty except for on the tricky move.

Sam says- most gripped i've been on a VS in a while, very little good gear and hard to find. Maybe HVS 4b/c? I say- piece of piss, big poofter. Best route in aaaages, the corner and move onto the ledge are ace! (on second...!)
