Rockfax Description
Keep as near as possible to the centre of the slab left of Heather Wall, with the odd runner in that route. It is a grade or two harder without these. © Rockfax

βeta: glad to hear you wer allowed side runners. i used one just below the crux. all the gear is worthless if you fall. thinking this route was hvs whilst climbing made me very scared.. so its a relief to know its koads harder like it felt.. top route though

βeta: For all who think the gear in Heather Wall spoils the route, a pink tricam fits very nicely in the obvious pocket that is easily reached just before the start of the crux sequence. May be a good E1 without the side runners using this...

βeta: Even with side runners it's still abit of a fall off the crux as you have to move well away from th crack. I should know cos i fell off.

βeta: In reply to Chris the Tall: "Follow the slab just left of Heather Wall arranging protection in that route" From the '91 BMC Froggatt guide. I agree with runners in Heather Wall its soft for HVS, but without surely it would be worth at least 1 E-point.

βeta: A lot harder than I remember, so I reckon I must have done it with side runners last time. The guide ought to say whether the grade reflects the use of side runners.

βeta: A rather nice piece of slab climbing. Technically much harder than 3PS, though with the side runners, more reliably protected. Hats off to anyone who solos it though...

βeta: Good, tricky slab climbing. I wouldn't do it without the side runners although this makes it quite artificial.

βeta: If you go direct up the slab which is the obvious line for a route independent of heather wall. It is much harder than 3PS with technical moves well above the gear. PS remember the micro wires or micro friends if you don\'t want a big fall from the hard moves near the top.
