A nice technical crux and I'd say worth 5b if you're shortish and start the move on the two crimps in the centre of the face. Also an enjoyable move off the ground. Worth doing providing you're strict with the line.

Very cool climbing, helps to be tall as nat booth found on second. Use a small crimp in the middle of the crux to move upwards to gain a positive high sidepull and then mantle the block.

My first HVS lead! I saw Tom lead it and decided to have a crack. With much less blubbing than I had anticipated I managed to make it pass the crux finishing with a belly flop mantel onto the ledge, before completing the final easy moves. Nice.
