Great route, though probably should have moved out right a bit earlier. Top is a bit run out for a V. Diff.

Nice lead from Anna. Probably more scared on the exposed last moves, although on top rope, than any of my leads.

One of the best vdiffs I've done but the last decent protection is at half height so it feels more like a HVD or an S.

The scariest VDiff in the world! Bold finish too, not one for a nervous VDiff leader. I'd give it S 3c.
