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

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.
