Rockfax Description
Starting round to the right climb the arete then traverse left under the roofs, crossing Hell Gate Crack to finish up the last moves of Gavel Neese. The start is quite bold and pumpy too. © Rockfax

Went up the start of hell crack as no gear in to protect traverse. So vs not hvs

Large cam protects the start of the first traverse but then it's just a case of get on with it. Theres a crimp hold just left of the pocket to get you under the overhang on easier rock. The traverse almost gets it to HVS but the rest of the route is easy.

Looks like there will be gear for the traverse, but struggled to find any so backed off

Rather committing sequence on traverse with a crap cam on two lobes. The ground drops rapidly over ankle snapping boulders. The moves are probably 4c but felt necky, tickling HVS I think.

Climb/controlled jumped to the floor a couple of times and gave the rope a few tugs from the floor to check the first cam so I suppose 'clean' onsight is pushing it!
