GeorgiePorgie1 2 Sep, 2018 Lead O/S Certainly agree with the grading on here. First pitch in the book is 4c for some strange reason. Led both pitches and the 2nd is one of the toughest 4c I've done. Proper sustained crack climbing. Love the 2nd pitch though.

Dave Musgrove 6 Aug, 2014 2nd Shame about the indistinct first pitch. It is good climbing up the black slab right of the corner but very little worthwhile gear without moving back left. Main pitch very good.

Nick Russell 21 Sep, 2013 Lead O/S I can't recommend this in its current state. The start is a veggie slab to a wet corner (I won't complain about this because the guidebook gives fair warning) and then the main crack is really dirty. I expect it would be a nice climb, probably even worthy of the star if it was clean, but I can't imagine it ever getting clean. Any rain will just wash more dirt down from above, regardless of how much traffic it gets. The only disappointment of the trip. It felt pretty stiff for VS 4c (maybe HVS 5a) but maybe that's just because of the condition of the crack - somehow I'm a lot less motivated when I'm not enjoying the climbing.

Zoomer 9 Aug, 2012 AltLd dog Holy crap!!!! The 2nd pitch is awesome....ly undergraded, ha ha! Been climbing really well this year, onsighting upto E2, but got completely shut down on this. Ran up every other VS that i tried on the island so i don't know how this is VS 4c. Excellent gear, big cams, but proper steep and hugely sustained. Maybe i had a bad day but got pumped to death on the jams, pulled on 1 bit gear and then had a death struggle all the way to the top. Next up required a hoist as did the 3rd (solid climber at VS)!!!!!!! However this is not to put anyone off, just fair warning, it is superb climbing and would get 3 stars and the plaudits if it sat at Stanage.
