Would for sure be HVS if the holds weren't so good. Some parts seem disturbingly unattached which adds to the spooky

Even more sustained and beautiful. Bloody steep, especially at the end, a real physical test for me at least. Loved every move between those astounding rock pillars. Better jamming. Loved it.

Horrid climb even on second, feels like the whole climb is going to come crashing down any day. Especially did not like being able to wrap my hands the whole way around the boulder near the top that I was climbing on.

Incredibly unlikely ground for the grade, but somehow manages to always have jugs where you need them. As good a pitch of VS as I've done anywhere.

First lead at Fairhead. Improbable line for the grade, but gear on demand and massive jugs when most needed.
