A fine delicate rib left of the hammer-head block on excellent rock. The first bolt is tricky to reach if the grass is wet.

Bag of Bones and Sack of Stones. Favourite warm up routes for Harper Hill, although like may HH routes I am always taking a few wires and friends with me because the bolts seem very spaced in places.

Better route than Sack of stones, although slightly easier the moves are very pleasant

A quality climb. The moves up the improbable looking but surpisingly amenable rib seem as good as anything around here. Nice.

must be about as hard as they come at 6a+. a memorable technical sequence on tiny footholds

Satisfying face climbing. Quality item.

Brilliant! Excellent, Superb climbing. Just how I like em.
But surely harder than 6a+.
I was looking for a route to warm down on and it was the hardest (and best) I've led all year. But superb.
I've led many many 6a+ in several countries, but this was way harder. And brilliant.
I reckon 6b or even 6b+ and so does the bloke I was climbing with who found it harder than Rage at Horseshoe, which he has just done. Rage is 6b.
I'd definitely do it again, but 6a+? Hmmm.
