More like E2 than HVS. Bomber gear but steep. Maybe because the walls of the crack were dusty dirty. I compounded things by blocking the best jam at the bulge with the stem of a friend. Up/down many times till I moved the friend, did it first go after moving it out of the way. Very satisfying. Expended as much effort as on Capricorn (E2 5c) on Cloggy.
