A superb second pitch follows the hanging rib right of Manx.</br>1) 4b, 14m. Climb onto a pedestal then continue up the groove to a bizarre stance in a unique cave.</br>2) 5a, 30m. Climb up right then traverse left above the cave to access the right wall of the hanging prow. Follow this with interest to a possible stance and finish up the wide crack of Manx over on the left.
Scrapy first pitch, superb moves for most of the second (though possibly only 4c), and a scrapy finish.
Pitch 2 has unusually fingery climbing for VS in a very exposed position. Superb !
Actually the time has come for the facts about this route to be known. Tom Proctor led none of this climb. The main pitch was led by Keith Myhill, the rest by me.
Cracking route, grade is certainly right at VS 5a, but it certainly deserves 3 stars.
A truly excellent second pitch. Fingery, exposed and a little committing (but not too much). Fabulous outing after work mid summer. VS 5a seems about right to me and I can't see why this doesn't deserve 3 stars too.
