12m. Follow either of the previous climbs, but cross the roof rightwards via a thin flake to an ungainly exit.

HVS 5a? WTF?
Graham - 31/Jan/02

Think the guide book gives this 5b technical - felt right for its grade. Considering gear is a little sprase (one blue alien) on the actual roof think the route is about e1. Really nice climbing anyway.

A tricky little number, must be worth 5b

I would think most people make the mistake of trying to start up the arete, rather than the proper start to the right. Easy lower climbing followed by good gear and a fun no-hands rest using a toe jam over the roof! No harder than HVS 5a done properly.

Effort is unavoidable for the finish of this safe route. I started up On a Wing And A Prayer, twas fine.
