real struggle to get the first move, tough move for a vdiff, but fine after that..

Seconded Rob up. Nice route, slab at the top must have felt pretty bold for VDiff on the lead.

Pussied out at the start, which felt stiff for the grade.

Very tricky first move to the cracks. I think this section is harder than VDiff and I doubt protection would stop you decking out to a very unpleasant landing. However, once you reach the cracks it is much easier. Would not be worth climbing again except for the beginning - perhaps as a boulder problem?
