Rockfax Description
10m. Thrilling climbing linking great holds by powerful moves. From the final niche, either step left and power through the bulges, or escape out right to evade the roofs. © Rockfax

Not clean had to rest after the crack before committing to the final move. Doesn't feel HVS felt more E1.

I did the crack fine and put all the gear in but got scared to commit to the blank looking finish. Ned lead it clean and I seconded just fine.

Pumpy route. Quite an easy lead once someone has placed all the gear for you and had to back off. Need to come back and do it clean! Ground up

Tough for such a short route. Sustained except for a jug in the middle that provides a good rest after pumping out placing gear and before the sequence of pumpifying crimps.

Not that hard, having good holds and gear; however, it does need to be climbed efficiently.

The Capt placed all the gear on lead & then backed off crux move. I finished off on lead. Not a true lead for full route. Capt seconded & retrieved gear.

Harder than I was expecting for HVS on the solo. Made the cross through move and wasn't sure how to top it out, started to get pumped, couldn't reverse it but luckily a couple of other climbers told me where the holds were, which was nice.
