26m. Vintage Harding. The superb straight crack gives classic jamming past a useful hole to reach easier but still steep ground. A wider section of crack gains a ledge, climb the groove on the left with an optional move out right for an airy exit.
First lead Pheonix Climb in 1956 in nailed boots and susequent ascents in P.A's confirmed the climbs quality. I think it is probably a two star climb
One of the best Gritstone VSs. Really big for grit, so a wonderful sense of exposure
Must be a contender for the best VS on grit
Fantastic!! The hole is amazing , i've never seen anything quite like it. in the top half the rock is a little broken and of lower quality and the very top is a bit green and a let down , this sections only worth about VDiff.
Very good route which I enjoyed immensely. The wide straight crack is not as hard as you would imagine, as it can be laybacked easily.
Yes, definitely one of the finest VSs on grit. Wonderful
