Is that Requiem Direct start? Nice touch.

To be honest, I'm not sure if it's the recognised Requiem direct start, but I'd imagine so. He started up 'Persistence of Vision', but veered more rightwards from 1/3-1/2 height through some thin-looking terrain. He said that he felt more secure taking this line than sticking on PoV. Given that he soloed this 'pitch', placing no gear till he was starting up the headwall crack itself, who could argue!? FWIW, he thought PoV was pretty stiff for 7A+ and that he felt quite sketchy on it. His lower line only took about 30-40 seconds so he obviously felt quite relaxed on it ;)
