Worthwhile route but very soft for VS no particularly difficult moves and reasonably well protected. Traversing along the face was a little exposed but that it about it. From the top of the pedestal, I finished direct instead which added some additional interest.

Really enjoyed this once I realised to move diagonally up and to the left. Moving horizontally left at the break was a bit sketchy. Skinned my knee for some added value.

Never a VS. More like HS 4b with the main difficulties being at the traverse, which short-lived. Good route and position though.
