The centre of the square-fronted tower is climbed pleasantly using some blisters. Avoid sneaking off right for the full effect. © Rockfax

ripper 14 Apr, 2018 Lead Lovely climbing, but I don't get how 5b with such useless gear can be HVS... I managed three pieces which were about good enough to support their own weight but I would not have wanted to fall on any of them. Surely has to be a higher overall grade - or if it is 'only' HVS, then a lower tech grade?

Albie 20 Sep, 2008 Lead β Was eyeing up some of the HVS 5a climbs but there were 2 teams here who were just backing off as it was too strenuous. Took their advice. Was about to head for my alternate VS 5a when I watched THis bloke cruise up this one. Only 2 gear placements but at least it wasn't strenuous. SO gave it a go. The crux was after the first break and heding for the next one. It was all crimps and footwork and also commitmment to go for it. Went up and down many times before going - slapped it, just, put in gear fast and cruised for home. As I hadn't checked this in the guide I assumed it 5a. I am very impressed to discover it's a 5b. Booom!
