Climbed this route again at the weekend, still felt have for HVS, agree with Peters comments not the route to push your grade on.

A great route worthy a couple of stars. Felt hard for the grade though, and i thought the gear was adequate but not plentiful.

Climbed this route back in August, nice sustained climbing on middle section, gear also felt gud. HVS 5a felt about right and worthy of 2 stars possibly.

Theres no 5b move on this route, and theres bomber gear exactly where needed. The thanx should be to Martin Daly. Cheers

Found this route a tough proposition for the grade (took 2 rests on the rope: it could be age or general decrepitude), I felt this was more like E1 5b and would urge caution regards protection comment; especially if your'e looking to push your grade to HVS. More comments on this one required to get a consensus. Never the less a good line for the crag, nice one Chris.

Definitely worthy of a star or 2
