18m. A real classic, nuff said! Climb the wall below the big square roof leftwards to the arete. Follow this the step right to enter and finish up the exposed hanging crack.
Feels quite hard for VS but worth the effort. It is one of the best VS on Grit - equal or better than such famous climbs as Missippi Buttress Direct, Hargreaves Original Route, Chevin Buttress, Pheonix or Valkyrie (Roaches). A must for all VS leaders.
Fabulous route - but some VS leaders might find it tough. Sustained climbing with stopper move after stopper move - feels longer than it looks from below. Definitely a 3 star must.
Exceptional route, solid three star VS route, again another Chew valley hidden gem. Stop and have a look around and especially down before the step right towards the finishing crack. Niiiiice!!!
I thought this was a bit hard for VS. The move right to access the hanging crack felt solid 5a. I had a good look around before I did the move and think I did it the easiest way. Harder than Route II (Wimberry).
Agree with Clams, feels a tad harder than Route 2 up on't Wimberry, fantastic exposure crossing O'er to that finishing crack, Brilliant stuff...
Brilliant stuff, every time you think you've done the crux, the next bit turns out to be just as hard.
