Pleased with how this went, hare reachy moves over the overhang to start but fine after that. Crux moves are thin, but it's only a short section

Brilliant route. Was cruising it till the crux. Then had to think how I was going to attack it. The gear is at your feet and 3 meters below once your at the tree. So it makes u switch on and with commitment you will be rewarded. After the sloppers mind... hahah. Loved it.

The start was so green and slippery. The top 5m is bold and pretty tricky to figure out at first (slopey holds and side pulls or gastons)

Climbing as good as the other HVSs on the same wall but just spoilt by the opportunity to bridge into the grotty cave at the start as one climber couldn't resist, no real need to as so juggy

Might have been a bit off route in the middle, as I never found the thread mentioned in the book. Had to psyche up for the crux at the top on slopers above gear. Not hard, but needs confidence.

Chris Sieradzki 26/May/13 2nd O/S

No way it's 5a. Never in a million years. Most of it it is a ladder climb. The top a bit harder but still there are no 5a moves.

Nice climb. The start is the hardest bit in my opinion.. tricky and powerful few moves which take you up moderately high before you have a comfortable rest from which to place gear. Was warned about the sloper-y run out at the top by another party on it, but I didn't really find it that notable.

I suspect that anyone who voted soft HVS for this didn't go directly up the blank wall near the top. Super committing hard 5a crux move with distant gear surely equals E1..
