Went up this trying to get solid at HVS without worrying, went pretty well. Have done the start on second before following Mike on Rimmington Place, put in a cam in the small crack to the left, looked over at it, gave it a tug, seemed alright so stretched up to the ledge, which is just in reach! Took a few looks at the following crack before I went up and did it, just one slightly awkward pull on a hold in the crack reaching up to the top break then swing up and left.

Started raining half way through seconding. Not great experience!

no protection at the first crux made the move feel a little exciting (the landing is very bad). the top is very well protected and only the first few moves are tricky. a great route but at the very very bottom of the hvs grade.

Good climb, a lot packed into 10 metres - highly recommended.

A bold approach is required at the top, crux is second move, faffed around blindlly fiddling a wire in.

Wonderful, wonderful route - the top section's just fun if you're not climbing at your limit.

great climb(sure is 5b for the short lace the crack below and go for the ledge that you only have two fingers on!)action packed for only 10mtrs high, has good protection on an airy overhanging finish. go do it

Classic, ***? Bold start over hideous landing, arete, heel-hook, flake, hidden side-pull, sketchy exit. Wow

Excellent route though short. Couldn't reach the ledge/break on the slabby bit so had to do a rather precarious lurch. Gear and holds very good on the top bit.
