The long groove gives nice climbing - popular.

The best protected HVS 5a anywhere?
Ideal for a first-timer.
Big holds and plenty of rests.

Looks like we have a recent rockfall here. All of the promised hand holds and gear placement have fallen out and it's still loose. I resorted to climbing and clipping on the neighbouring E1 5b climb to escape the loose rock. After that it was plain sailing but there was really very little gear in the upper section.

Seemed perfectly reasonable grade and gear wise when I did it in May 2011
