found a micro wire for the crux so gave it a go, was quite gripping. Went up and down several times before fully committing. moves are quite hard maybe 5b/5c. Guidebook showed E1 5c.

Seemed much easier then E1 5c as it is given in the BMC guide, felt harder then VS though!

eel - Solo O/S - 20/Aug/11

Set out with the idea of placing gear, ended up being a solo! i.e not much gear, but steady enough. Prob HVS about right
