The obvious rightward slanting groove rising from the middle of the crag. As the groove peters out, climb twin crack upwards, avoiding the overlaps on the right. Either step left for the original finish, or step rightwards to the top of the crag.

Epicly fun climb, first HVS and what a route to do it on; a little tricky trying to find an anchor when at the top.

Utterly brilliant. I was expecting it to be more sustained but never came close to being pumped. And the climbing is first class with gear and rest when ever u need them. Probably my favourite hvs I've done. 3***s all day long.

Miserable. Got up to the bottom of the start of the climb. Put some good gear in, but just couldn't commit to doing the route. Checked the gear was ok and downclimbed. Then climbed back up to get the gear out and downclimbed again.

Great route, really varied climbing. It just goes on and on. Seems like the final step left into the steep finishing section doesnt get climbed much as there was a lot of lichen and some of the holds are loose - take care - or step right for what looks like an easier and more popular finish.

The Ivanator 17/Aug/11 Lead dnf

I was assassinated, quickly and efficiently ...only managed about 5m after the steepening, polished holds in crack not as good as expected, didn't trust gear and felt the pump coming on backed off. Need to be fitter before I next try a strenuous HVS lead.
