Rockfax Description
A good but testing line. Start at slim corner-crack on the right of the black slab.
Climb the slim corner-crack to a ledge. Make some tricky moves up right to another crack and follow this to the top. © Rockfax

Ben being a similar height to me compared to Laurence meant the this route seemed much easier this time round. Nice moves moving off the face onto the slab before the higher grooves.

LMC Cornwall meet. VDiff in climbers club guide but felt hard for an HVD to me. Main crack was very wet and had a large cam stuck in it. Ended up having to pull on the cam sling to get up so either its blocking a hold or I was doing it wrong :s.

Felt awkward perhaps due to Laurence being tall and placing gear from different positions, making gear strenuous to remove. I thought it was quite tough for HVD.
