Rockfax Description
Start under the roof and trend left to pass it strenuously using a large jammed block just above the lip with care. Once above the bulges, step back right and finish more easily up the slabby face and groove. © Rockfax

Bit of an ego boost after failing at a load of other HVSs! Crux is pretty low and committing but not too hard as you're on rather big holds.

My first HVS- which will be forever memorable for the outrageous cloud of midges that descended just after retreat became impossible! We have 150+ bites between us :-(
