A popular and rewarding climb that consists of two totally contrasting pitches; the first technical and the second super steep. Start on a high flat ledge left of Black Slab.</br>1) 4c, 24m. Pull onto the slab. Climb rightwards to its edge and move up to where it meets the steep wall above. Make technical moves up and right to a black vein and follow this more easily, moving right after 5m, to a belay below the overhanging corner at the right-hand end of the large overhang.</br>2) 5a, 8m. Climb the overhanging corner, perplexing but well-protected, and pull over the lip on massive holds to easier ground. A wild pitch.
Im sure this was VS when I did it 5 years ago, and Im sure Zig-zag, Anvil Chorus and Little Brown Jug were all harder...
VS 4c - with the crux being pitch 1. Pitch 2 is straight forward, well protected, chimneying to jugs. As above - LBJ, and AC are much harder (not done Zig-Zag). Absolutely no way is this HVS.
