Small holds allow the shallow seam to the right to be climbed.

Another good micro-route, mild moves but quite committing. I thought HVS 5b was supposed to be safe 5b....oh wait this is grit bollox grades.

Enjoyable moves but worrying top out; typical grit.

The 5b move is within bouldering height. The HVS is given for the top bit which is a 4c solo (HVS 4c). Put the two together and you've got a bona fide HVS 5b. No bollox involved! Makes perfect sense - if you have a gearless route with a 'normal' grade, simply means that the hard bit is near the bottom and you have a much easier solo to finish.

Some very small holds but a huge jug to go for.

Great little problem, felt a bit 'necky' reaching for the first of the big holds - can't say I'd want to fall off from there since the ground is angled enough to hurt!
Andrew Barker - 23/Jan/06

The fact that the ground slopes is a good thing. I fell off the reach for the big holds below the top out twice (sans mat/spotters) and just jumped off "uphill". Easy 5b with good footwork.....but I wouldn't listen to me ;-)
