Rockfax line at the top seems ridiculous. You have to go up above it then drop back down on to it when the sensible line is staring you in the face. It would involve traversing the lower break with your feet heel hooking higher than your hands (the break gets slightly loer as it goes round). I dont believe for a minute that Ivar Berg soloed that!
On Peak Rock identifies the E1 as simply an alternative start to eitherthe HVS or VS. Im pretty sure On Pek Rock is right!
Having said all that, the start (worth E1 5b on its own easily) and the finish (the HVS way) are both very good, althoguh the middle is scrappy.
