The blunt central arete of the wall has a thin flake crack running up it. Tricky moves (wires) lead to the beckoning holds, above which things rapidly ease off.

only really one hard move on this and thats really well protected.

And a very nice move it is too.

Nice stuff, but soft touch. The protection is a tiny bit sketchy in places but the low tricky move (easy 5b?) is well protected. If it's an HVS it's only just.

nice climbing once you commit. interesting moves using the big pocket on the right of the arete

Flake sounding a bit hollow. Wouldn't want to fall on the wire I had behind it. Was having a lucky day as I got this and The Blurter and my partner got Travesties and that HVS 5b(5c) one move wonder on the slabby bit left of Blurter. Deuteronomy royally shafted me though.
Dave Foster - 25/Aug/08

bit of a one move wonder, after that its fairly straightforward. Travesties is much harder
