A work in progress which might be interesting for those making the transition from V.S. to H.V.S.
All of these routes were once known as V.S.'s, but have subsequently been upgraded to H.V.S. Some I've done, some I haven't, some are easy and others not; so don't be fooled by the numbers, a few of these represent a decent challenge for climbers at both grades.
