Would be more of a hvs if you are short. Most can reach the break from good footholds. I can, just.

Low in the grade difficult wise, crux has relatively poor protection.

Nice route. Very straight-foward, especially if you're tall.

Really nice little route. One to return to again and again I think. The crux for me was near the start - getting stood with feet in the horizontal break.
