The upper arete is gained from the right. Pleasant though poorly protected, and featuring a huge chipped hold. The direct start up the groove to the left of February Fox is an overgrown 6b.

If you're tall or just very agile, you can do the crux via an exilarating heel hook round the arete!

A direct start up the wall 4ft to the left of March Hare is excellant but scary E1 5b

A one move wonder but a nice one.

My first ever 'HVS'. Its really a run out VS, though, with good rests all the way.
