| HVS 5a|
<< Cyclops < Fly On The Wall | Spiders Web > None >>
A varied and testing hybrid which is both delicate and strenuous. Start right of Fly on the Wall at the base of the slabby face.
1) 5a. Climb the weakness 4m right of the slabby arete. Move left under the overhangs to the arete. Move up and back right above the overhang (not direct). Move right again to a belay.
2) 5a. Move back left into the overhanging corner on the arete and follow this to easier climbing.
FA. T.Patey 1958 / L.Benstead 1969
In fact, the crux upper pitch of Imperialist at the Dewerstone was first lead by Dennis Morrod 1969.
