Really nice route! Passed the crux which was really interesting, but once standing above the borehole a sheet of slime (didn't look that bad from the ground) stopped me in my tracks. Will definitely be back when it's dry!

Turns out that things are more scary on lead. Took a good 20 minutes to work out the sequence to get out of the borehole, got there eventually.

This route is definitely worth a star! Ignore what the Avon Guide says about it "not being a sparkling route by Central Buttress standards". I'd put it at low E1. Two of the three pegs at the crux are brand new - thanks Avon Bolt Fund! Watch out for the loose hold once standing above the crux!

Definitely a worthwhile excursion. Not as scary as the guidebook suggests.

previously seconded. Definitely felt e1 5b and worth a star. Rope drag on the slab to the top was horrendous! Pegs at crux look good and managed to back up with wires

Somebody placed a new peg in the crux borehole.

Found this was a bit tough for HVS 5b. E1 really. thankfully fordie's lead. some pro but seemed in the wrong place.

Haven't onsighted a 5b move for ages. Feels like E1 5b to be honest. Had my eye on this for ages, glad to have got it done! Crux is getting out of the top borehole. Good.

e1 definitely, glad i didn't lead it

Tricky crux, pulled on a crumbling crimp. Got a crap green nut in the preceding borehole crack between 3 pegs, one of which was pretty bendy. Ran out the rope massively on the slab at the top, overclimbed the pitch and unbeknownst to me Stephen had to start climbing before I finished the lead.

Finally led this. Soft E1 5b? The nuts on the crux are not exactly good, more like OKish...

Really nice quality rock. I thought pretty steady 5a but it felt easy to read. Seconded so not sure about adjective grade. Very possibly E1 depending on how much you trust manky pegs and wobbly wires (I think one of the cleaned wire slots would hold)

with Peter

crux is solid 5b and the protection and moves do merit E1...

The best nut placement on the crux seems to crucially require an offset nut.

Good climbing whit a fairly soft 5b move which requires a little commitment above a cluster of gear!

pheotleyr 10/Mar/13 TR O/S

Cleaned the crack of the crux borehole, giving rise to about 3 good small nut placements, which possibly makes this quite a nice top end HVS 5a again.

Pitons weren't inspiring. Climbed borehole using sloping foothold on right
