12m. Go directly up the slab just left of the overhang with good delicate moves on spaced pockets. There is some protection!
you must have smaller cams than we did, felt more like HVS
The first small cam placement is 3 or 4 feet off route to the left. Unfortunately I only discovered this later when leading Ariel, so did the first hard bit protected by a single dodgy nut. HVS without the side runner?
Sketchy moves, protected by well spaced small cams more than a VS make IMHO. Very nice Airy climbing.
a nice delicate groove - keep an eye for a pebble on a difficult move on the start of the groove.
A little bold, but very satisfying with nice 4b/4c friction climbing. Lower moves can be protected by wires (unless you have a seriously small cam). Moves above protected by size one friend.
pleasant friction climbing with gear arriving just too late for any of the real difficulties, but satisfactory for a little peace of mind.
I loved this route.
Really nice route. Typical slab moves, and a little bold, but not hvs-bold. Try Perforation on Crows Chin a little further along if you want something hvs-bold
Defintiely not HVS - Great route and amazing slab climbing. Agree with Dave - the pebble is the way up!
Did this a while ago. Thought it was pretty routine. Much harder and less well protected VSs nearby.
