Bit of a nightmare to get started on. Yo-yoed up and down a fair amount placing gear (not loaded) to protect the layback start but once committed dispatched with minimal terrors; though tiring enough towards the end to consider making a dash to the top with no gear before sense kicked in.
Felt like a tough VS as opposed to a HVS. Gear was ok for the layback which was a little bit intimidating though the cracks above gave solid jamming. But this is my first HVS!

Killianmurphy - Lead dnf - 05/May/12
the start is defo 5a and can be well protected with a high nut that you can udge up to prior to the layback, this I think is VS 5a. The upper section is harder jamming than the file but has more rests, so overall about equivalent and either hard 4c or easy 5a. Overall I think VS 5a fits the climb if the file remains at VS 4c, although both are pumpy routes and I would happily see both at (mild) HVS.

Nice crack. The jamming's getting better, but Kieran couldn't get up it.
Jeronimo - Lead O/S - 10/Oct/08
A real struggle for me seconding this. Very nice layback move at bottom and again near the top. In between there is some pretty brutal jamming required. More HVS than VS methinks

Quite pleased with this really, wonder if this should be an effort for a lead some other time. Did it ok although last section was tough. Good lead by Neal and very good climb in general.. This is what keeps my hopes alive of leading HVS, esp after my failed epic on Valkyrie.
