Start along Ellis's Eliminate but make a long stretch and difficult pull on poor holds followed by a precarious high step to access the centre of the fine wall. Finish up this.

This is a great route, although the lack of holds and gear for the hard moves is a little worrying. Once on the wall it is slightly easier but still great.

This route definitely deserves it's two stars. The hard moves are quite delicate, and some way above your protection, and it felt high in the grade, to me. Once established in the centre of the face, proper, there's some classic grit 'between the breaks' climbing to follow.

By rights it should get E1 for the run out but being as you'ld peel off into space under the nose then it's correct at HVS. Getting stood up in the break is a great move .

Very nice route, better than Ellis'. I was climbing well quite well today but even so I thought it was soft for 5b, more like 5a (for a couple of moves, off the break and above as well). The slight run out means its fair at HVS to me. Jamming makes a big difference because there are several long reaches which are easier if you can jam in the break youre reaching from.

Good route. didn't find it reachy or slopey. felt easier than queersville and Hardings Superdirect

The traverse out feels committing but plenty of gear, holds and rests arrive soon after. Great fun
