Take the right-hand crack to its end, then swing right with difficulty, pull-up to reach a flat hold and heathery ground.

After the top crack gear gets marginal to say the least for a couple of metres. The move is also less than obvious.

Plus its absolutely nails. Surely harder than 5a. I suspect that this route wasn't checked!

Seems to me to be a broken(perhaps crucial)hold at the top of the crack. Not HVS 5a.

There is a large scar where the last good runner placement (and jam?) used to be before the traverse out right. Seems harder than HVS 5a now and quite pumpy.

Absolutely death on a stick at hvs. A distinct lack of any holds whatsoever at the top of the crack to enable the traverse rightwards.

yep, this is absolutely nails, and the gear is atrocious. miles off hvs
Jon Stewart - 31/May/05

I sandbagged myself on this one, could not see how to traverse right (frankly laughable). So unwilling to back off at HVS? (my ego will get me into serious trouble one day) I traversed out left at the same level, and by the smallest margin made the left arête, narrowly avoiding a nasty fall. My own fault I freely admit, but I think it highlights a problem with this route.
karl walton - 31/May/05

agree, needs checking before next guide

The top of the crack is impossible with the broken hold, I couldn't even find a way up it on a top-rope.

Did Landsick, Moyers and Eye of Faith last Saturday; this one was by far the hardest!!
