25m. A few metres right of Laughing Cavaliers is a smaller crack line. Climb the crack directly past a number of horizonal breaks until the angle relents (past some vegetation) and joins the excellent pocketed upper wall.

Continue to climb almost directly up but trending a little right until you can clip a good thread out left (shared with Laughing Cavaliers). From the thread traverse right until just left of the big crack of One For All and then climb almost directly up to the small tree and further larger tree abseil above.

Repeat ascent but on lead this time - really struggled with the traverse and had to rest a couple of times. Put a nut up under the overlap flake then went right - possibly traversed too high as seemed v hard. Rest of the route is an absolute delight!!

Excellent route, a bit pumpy when placing gear in the lower half but eases up as the angle relents. Traversed right just after the thread (easy enough) and finished up the excellent upper sequence. We were eyeing up the direct finish afterwards, which looks doable but tough.

Was climbing really well, so thought I'd try the E1 5c direct finish... well turns out I wasn't climbing as well as I thought, not well enough to do 5c moves anyway. Fell off of a smear after reaching the wobbly finger crack, and rejoined original HVS route with tail between legs. A bit gutted - wasted an HVS onsight for a shot at glory. :/

The lead was fine until I reached the traverse. I made a mistake, went a bit too high and missed the protection on the thin vertical crack for the traverse. Fell on the very hard bit I was trying to traverse. Not a nice fall, but managed to finish the climb anyway, after placing gear in the crack and traversing at the right height. Great route, by the way.

Really nice climbing. Fairly steep start to gain the slab. The direct finish is more ascetically pleasing, must come back to do that.

got a bit lost on this one but the lower section was steep and fun

My first HVS!

Eddie Hung 26/Jan/08 Lead O/S

My first completed HVS! Decided to be a little cocky about it and only place one dodgy cam into a knee height crack before attempting the bold middle section which was quite scary!
