14m. Climb the groove to a ledge and loose flakes to access the bottom corner of a hanging slab. Climb this diagonally leftwards to a ledge and stance. Finish up the corner. Not really to be recommended.

Strange combination here. Evening Ridge is the most undergraded Peak VD I have come across. Next to it, The Harp, is the most overgraded Peak 4c I have come across. How can they get it so wrong??

A sandbag at VD - the start is steep and awkward, and the gear is strenuous to place. The ledge was rather sandy when we did it.

Under graded!!! Nasty exposed finish.

Found the gear easy to place and loads of easy rests. Although I have no idea on the grade but reckon vd might be bit low. Severe maybe.

No way VDiff, it's severe at least, a steep start and exposed finish.
