Rockfax Description
A memorable climb of sustained interest that follows the appealing corner just right of the tip of the promontory. Start on high ledges below a large ledge at the base of the corner itself.

Mantleshelf onto the large ledge below the corner. Climb the sustained corner via jamming and bridging to an easing below an overhang. Pass the overhang with a big pull on good holds out to the left and finish more easily. Belay on the tip of the promontory. Scramble off along the crest of the promontory. © Rockfax

Tough going with tricky moves coming regularly, but brilliant.

Felt reasonably hard but well protected. Had to rest lots in wide bridgy positions. The reach out when going over the overhang was probably the crux.

A great route, with the hardest moves maybe in the bottom. Getting up to, and breaching the roof was quite committing too though. As ever it was not the difficulty of the moves that held me back, but fear and lack of commitment. Took me ages!

Great climb. Tough move up through the roof. Was happy not to be leading it!

An excellent line but very gritty in places meaning footwork is not as crisp as it could be. A tricky route for me as I'm not keen on the old jamming! A tricky but pleasing first lead of the year!

E1 5b but very well protected (you decide). Not to be underestimated. Needs more traffic!

Technically superb. [2017 note: It was then seriously undergraded at HVS. The correct modern description should be: E1 5b ***, being rather better and comparable in difficulty to Long Tall Sally at Burbage.]
