If you're comfy at HVS, this is a cracker! Favourite route of the day, steady and not pumpy but bold in places, plenty of clever small wires.

The arete is puzzling and bold, the overlap is also puzzling and bold. Followed by a scoop which is... Good value for money.

Several different cruxes and many interesting moves. Good route. Looked a bit bold.

What a fab pitch, and not polished to buggery like the others around it. Needs a steady approach as gear is not that great when you need it!

In one pitch. Excellent, varied climbing, with spaced but adequate gear , always where you need it. The crux would be hard if you were somewhat reach-impaired.

Toughat times almost gave in to a lower down. But dug my heals in and overcame, by getting feet higher and higher.

Mike Sheehan 25/Apr/11 2nd rpt

Two tricky moves one on lower pitch, made ok after one attempt. One on upper pitch, just managed to make safe on hold and re-establish secure position. Interesting belay on steep wall and narrow ledges, possibly two thirds up.

Oli was leading adam and some how got hideously lost and ended up on the belay for eve, so i finished it off up the second pitch of this i think, ace climbing.
