18m. The steep cracks in the wall give a steep and superb pitch. Layaways and jugs lead to a tricky entry into a shallow nipple-eroding groove which requires a bit of 'udgery'.
Superb climbing with some tricky moves. As I value my nipples ;) I found a double-hand jam worked nicely as an alternative at the top of the route!
Steep but steady. Noticed no nipple erosion or udgery. Fell off at start in comedy "lets pull this wire really hard to make sure it's in well" moment (it wasn't in well at all).
Probably closer to 'traditional peak HVS 5b' than E1 in character. Slight shame about being able to step off the block on the left to start.
Completely agree with GrahamD, this is a another quintessential gritstone HVS 5b. Add Delstree and Bachelor's Left-hand to give your limestone E3 climbing friends a glorious day's introduction to the joys of gritstone.
Yup, probably going down to HVS 5b in the next edition!
Fantastic route, quite pumping.
E bloody 0. Come on stop burying your heads in the sand.
Easier than Delstree. Didn't find it pumpy and where is the 5B move?
