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).

Felt hard for HVS. Popped off getting gear out... Probably would have popped off anyway though

Really nice climb, did the direct finish. Fell off a wet foothold on the onsight and was very green in places

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!

Direct this time. Strenuous lower crack and delicate finish. Very worthwhile.

Brilliant, sustained and varied. Should have hand-traversed right instead of trying to mantle onto the ledge near the top. Got stuck with my leg thrown over the left-hand bit of the ledge and had to weight the rope to :o(

Some nice moves on this route. Took a big fall after some poor decision making. I've left a nut stuck at the start of the traverse round the arete I'm afraid.

Quite hard traversing after the crack near the top, maybe I did it wrong.

Have to say I wasn't that impressed by this climb. It had some nice moves on it, but the wandering line means it doesn't deserve more than one star, in my view.

Fell on the steep hand jamming crack, powered through the crack. Got established on the flake then fell again. Finally finished, Awesome route. Can't wait to go back and lead it clean.
