A grade harder than the crack to the left (which is only VS). Really nice climbing.

Hard technical and sustained start but with good gear. I thought this worth HVS 5b if Ozone Layer is HVS 5a. Nice climb.

Nice climbing with perfect gear, shame it ends 10m up!

great climb - tricky start, and above the break where the angle eases was trickier than it looked
