Rockfax Description
Low in the grade and well protected. The slippery slabby groove up the left edge of the slab gives good climbing to a ledge at its top. Continue up the left-hand of the two steep grooves. Care needed with the exit. The right-hand groove is harder and dirtier. © Rockfax

βeta: Good route, abit green and slippery on the first section which would probably warrant the 5a, good solid gear, make sure you have alot of wires and quickdraws as I almost ran out at the top.

βeta: Very confusing having a route with 2 finnishes. In my opinion the left hand finnish that i did would only get VS 5a tops - no idea about the right hand finnish, i didn't even consider it as it was vegetated and unused.

βeta: My first HVS... would have to say led Great Harry across the road before hand... uummmm not a lot in it. Much as it pains me to say so it's soft HVS with bomber gear, good choice for your first one. very nice slab to begin with then some footwork & power is needed for the crack. Worth 5a for a short arse like me.
