This gets E1 in definitive guide, HVS in Rockfax, but it seems easier than that. Gear is a little spaced but climbing is steady. Possibly hardest move was jump/mantel start

cookie-doo 02/Oct/15 Solo O/S

did it as the last climb of my experimental solo day and considering that this climb followed a bunch of diffs it can't have been too hard... not sure where the hvs was, or 5a for that matter. a sweet slab climb though!

Apart from the starting moves, this didn't feel any different from the Severe on the arete. Need to take care to go straight up the middle of the slab and avoid using holds on the VDiff to your right.

Good climbing. Hard severe or VS would be more accurate when compared to other routes on Burbage North. Do a same-day comparison with with something like mutiny crack (currently graded HS 4b), Black slab(currently VS4b) or the grazer(currently VS).

Cannot understand the HVS grading of this route. (The definitive guide has it at E1 5a!) It's easier and better protected than the nearby Farcical Arete which is correctly graded at HS 4b.

Really enjoyed it, a couple of nice moves. Wouldn't call it a HVS though but then again, it's my first HVS lead tick so I'm not arguing :)

was informed this was mild for grade, understatement of the month.

if you stick to the middle section of the slab like your supposed to it does feel HVS, well I hope it is.

A very nice delicate slab climb, although soft in the grade. Claire cruised the lead, which was great.

No way E1! In Rockfax as HVS, and that's generous. I'd give it VS4c.
