Rockfax Description
The clean-cut corner crack is a VS with attitude. With gear placed as high as possible, layback and jam with conviction and try not to pump out before the sanctuary of the horizontal break. A 'go for it' approach is a poor idea here. Move right a short distance and belly-flop over the top. For those who are not pumped senseless a direct exit is not much harder. © Rockfax

Pumped out of my tiny mind fell once before the first stance, then again on the final move, fantastic route, super safe it's basically sport.

I found this ok. Two cams as high as you can and then charge up the sustained layback to jugs and a better rest. I moved left at the top, difficult to reach the mantle ledge

Wow, that was exciting! As the description suggests popping in gear as high as you can before committing to the bulk of the layback is a good idea. I was too tempted to rest with my hands in the horizontal break. Should have continued up for a couple more feet to get my feet in. Struggled with gear as the pump began. Had to get my second to perform a rather dynamic catch as I fell from well above the last piece of gear. Some quick placing cams would have helped... Will be back!

Should be E for energetic, not technical just bloody pumpy hard work. Definately felt harder than a few hvs' i've climbed. High in the grade on pure work levels. I'm no good at jamming and couldn't keep pushing with one of my feet to maintain the pressure of layback while moving hands up and fell a couple of times. Was exhausted by the finish. Will have to come back for a clean attack when i'm in better climbing shape.

A hood honest VS as they say - quite full value but not too bad if you just layback quickly to the good bridging rest - far easier than the "HVS" to the right! An excellent and memorable climb anyway.

OMG this climb should be on the top 50 list in Rockfax and is an absolute must for anyone learning to climb on grit. Bomber gear, jamming to get into the crack two more solid runners then textbook laybacking(my first)up to the horizontal breaks. Manged to place gear while laybacking and got a good rest at the top break before taking the left hand exit. Pumped but delighted!

Luke first attempted to lead, but finally gave up and was lowered off after several pieces of gear were placed. Then I took over using the same rope end with those gear already clipped. I found myself to be airborne before I noticed and even before I reached Luke's high point (namely in practically the top-rope section)... Wet rocks are to blame? Nevertheless I was terribly annoyed with my own performance!

I thought pretty hard for VS! Good bomber gear, but inorder to stop and place it you have to be in a strenuous layback position or stood on poor smears, bar the first piece. The top was also suprisingly difficult, the move getting from the first break to stood on the ledge above.

Short fall after failing to commit to the layback but was easy when i actually did the moves properly. (The blood trail is proof that I did get to the top!)

A gem of a route, and the laybacking isn't as hard as it looks.

Was surprised to find the top-out harder than the layback.

Very strenuous. Laybacking is really not for my little T-Rex arms. Well led by CF.
