8m. The th(r)uggish crack splitting the steep wall. Short-lived.

A classic struggle at the grade. The word sandbag was invented for this route (unless your good at jamming that is!)

Strenuous for VS, but solid jamming and protection

a nice vs,no harder

i went up it thinking it was a vs 4c, think that would have been right even though it was hard work. similar to counts crack at stanage (vs 4c) but i would say not as hard as the file, higgar torr (vs 4c)

Nice little route. Technically is a 5a, specially because it is unsuspectedly overhanging. However is very short and well protected, so just a VS.

If this stays at HVS it's possibly the worst case of grade-creep I've ever seen. It's very easy even for VS! Compare say this at HVS to Masochism at Ramshaw at HVS... hmmm!
