<< Hollyash Crack < Knight's Move  |  Arme Blanche > Great Crack >>

Climb Knight's Move to the break above the roof, follow this all the way to the arete passing a sapling, to an easy finish. A better finish is up the shallow crack above the sapling at HVS 5a.

The end of the traverse was very dirty. Obviously doesn't get climbed much. Worthwile though. The last moves up past the tree were relatively frightening due to the dirt.

If The Knights Move is HVS then this must be too. The traverse is easier than it looks. There was no dirt when I did it earlier this year but the tree does hinder the ropework a little.

I agree... if Knight's Move is H.V.S then this should be too, infact in my opinion Knight's Move is V.S. although i'd give this H.V.S.

I think that this climb is a very good VS 4c, i finished the traverse at the small tree and then climbed diagnally right to finish at the top of Great Crack which i thought was harder than a 4c move.

Climbed direct up the incipient crack above the tree at the end of the traverse. Superb grippy unused grit. Bold moves but steady, probably 5a making the whole route HVS 5a. Not in any guidebook that I have seen which is suprising as makes a wonderful finish to the traverse and makes use of a section of rock without a route on.
