A burly pitch that follows a jamming crack up the corner on the left of the square-cut buttress that is perched above a ledge. Start by scrambling to the ledge and a belay under the corner. Enter the corner strenuously and jam away up the crack to a rightward exit near the top.

A route of character: grit your teeth and get stuck in! Memorable stuff.

Just when you thought you could climb HVS 5A......! You can either get up it, or you can't - but you've got to try it!
