Rockfax Description
10m. Climb the slab to the break, fidget left then stretch for the ledge. Walk off or, much better, do Fishladder. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Start up the right-hand side of the slab. Up to the break, then traverse 3 metres left to below the obvious ledge. A LONG reach or a technical move gains a good hold and the ledge.

Nice! Think I made it harder than it needs to be by moving too far left and rocking up using the diddy flake, felt more top end 5c this way hey ho.

My first HVS lead. Pretty straight forward and only needed a single piece of gear. Recon it would go as a solo.

The stretch had me a bit gripped

Ended up top roping it. Shoulder, lats and deltoids too weak!
