Rockfax Description
22m. A little devious but with excellent, varied and exposed climbing. Head up the awkward left-leaning groove, then move left and climb Grad's Groove until holds lead out right. Climb the crack and continuation flake to a small ledge, then move delicately right into Y Climb to finish. The Direct Version is a good HVS 5b. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
The lower crack can be climbed direct (avoiding Grad's Groove) and a delicate direct finish up the arête is recommended (avoiding Y Climb).

spenser 22 Jul, 2015 Lead O/S Harder than any other HVS and most of the E1s I've led! Feet both popped off while moving through the overhang and surprisingly my hand jam stayed in leaving me hanging, got on with it after that! 3 sections of solid 5a climbing with ledges in between and reasonable gear, spent ages stood on the ledges trying to figure out how to do the next bits! Apparently I can jam when required though!
