Rockfax Description
A real classic, high in the grade and intimidating too. Climb up to the square roof then traverse onto the arete. Follow this before stepping right to finish up the exposed hanging crack. © Rockfax

βeta: I thought this was a bit hard for VS. The move right to access the hanging crack felt solid 5a. I had a good look around before I did the move and think I did it the easiest way. Harder than Route II (Wimberry).

βeta: Fabulous route - but some VS leaders might find it tough. Sustained climbing with stopper move after stopper move - feels longer than it looks from below. Definitely a 3 star must.

βeta: Feels quite hard for VS but worth the effort. It is one of the best VS on Grit - equal or better than such famous climbs as Missippi Buttress Direct, Hargreaves Original Route, Chevin Buttress, Pheonix or Valkyrie (Roaches). A must for all VS leaders.
