The most falling/resting I've ever done! SO different to seconding. Felt like I had the sequence completely wring today, god knows how I did it last time. Top-section was relatively easy, though by that time I was completely boxed and had lost my head a bit. Need to be bolder, trust the gear as it's good, and work out a better sequence. Some good holds up and right (hidden) when moving into the recess.

gazfellows - 2nd - 20/May/12 with Billy nic, steff
What a cracking route! Beautifully sustained bottom section in particular. Definitely not 5c - sustained 5b is more like it - but personally I would agree with the HVS grade as the gear is bombproof everywhere! It's a hard HVS or soft E1 and I'd prefer the former.

HVS 5c is a ridiculous grade. Not a 5c move on it, but plenty of 5b. So surely E1 5b makes way more sense. Either way, strong route!
Dave 88 - 2nd O/S - 16/Apr/12 with Kemics
Ground up. Fell on the onsight low down, worked the low crack to the rest on the rope. Lowered, pulled ropes and lead clean.
Not really 5c but not really HVS. E1 5b makes waaay more sense and more accurately reflects the climbing.
