I lead both pitches. 2nd pitch was very stiff for the grade. But it is an enjoyable route/experience. Both my seconds had to rest and be pulled up on the rope. Not sure they enjoyed it

2 great varied pitches. The chimney was a bit dry mouth inducing

Awesome route, both pitches are amazing. Some amazing moves and positions with just enough gear on brilliant rock.

VS/HVS 4c/5a hmmm, don't miss the crucial nut runner in the chimney

GrahamUney 21/Oct/16 AltLd

Pitch 1 is definitely 4c and Pitch 2 feels 5a. This route is HVS!

Pitch 2 a bit of a sandbag for a new VS leader I would have said. Entering and exiting the chimney HVS moves and gear.

led p1, seconded p2. Felt high in the grade/hard for the grade.

up to just past the crux corner on the 2nd pitch but it was wet at the top and so i downclimbed.

Peter Metcalfe 03/May/14 Lead

Quite tough for VS, wouldn't have argued with low HVS. Gear poor in chimney but you can some reasonable small gear at its top (assuming you're tall enough)

Tough for a vs but a fantastic climb. Difficult move getting out of the chimney but exhilarating.

Great route, but a bit of a sandbag. Hopefully it will be regraded in the new guidebook. The first pitch is certainly 4c not 4b, and the top pitch is 5a (and scary!)
