Would like to think it would have gone clean but I dropped the appropriately sized nuts, had to downclimb/lower to get them back and then took a while to get back into it. My first HVS, considerably easier than the HVD Ladybird around the corner in my opinion.

Shot up the first half of this climb and struggled with the second half. The first part is a finger width crack with good feet positions either side. The second half required more footwork but has a massive jug that can be reached with a bit more thought that I put in initially. Had to rest at this point.
