Rather good is an understatement, good gear, and holds all the way but the hardest crux on a VS i've ever done. I could understand how you could get pumped, and probably would be HVS on the eastern edges. Where it would get the traffic it deserves and would keep it cleaner, as it was slightly gritty in places.
