Rockfax Description
Climb either crack in the right-hand side of the slab (the right-hand one is easier) to a short jamming crack; up this to a tricky move onto a ledge and an awkward finish on flat holds. © Rockfax

βeta: Led this after Ben backed off, so clipped three bits of his gear. Very sketchy and wet inside the cracks, felt spicy for hs. Hot aches didn't help.

βeta: This was quite dirty when I did it. Well, not excessively but the whole route had a thin layer of mud over it.

βeta: What on Earth is the logic behind grading this VS 4b. It has only one hard move (which is probably only 4a really) and it is safer than a very safe thing. Surely HS 4b if not S 4b. All the same, a very nice route.

βeta: Never hard, but nicely sustained (for a short route anyway) and very plesant. I dont see why it should be VS 4b though, HS 4b or VS 4c.

βeta: A pleasant HS route when clean, better in winter when the ants at the top don't attack you.

βeta: The finish is easy, not akward, there is an obvious finger jug available
