Original Route VD
The rib on the left hand side of the red slabs area. Move right about halfway up then finish up the back wall of the bay behind. "Original Route Variation Finish" - An alternative finish can be made by stepping onto the quartz slab at 2/3rds height, then pulling over the projecting nose - makes for a more satisfying finish and increases the grade to Sev 4a.

tried to do the severe finish, but not sure we managed it. again this route felt very hard for the grade. tricky move at the start possibly deserves technical grade also hold is full of mud! after that the gear and holds fanish for a few meters giving you a good chance of decking out! rest is straight forward. not recomended for VD leader.
