One of the best grit VS's out there- varied, absorbing climbing with great positions high up.

Brilliant. Interesting with a couple of moves that needed thinking through but with rests at the right places

Brilliant, made more brilliant by the very shiny new cams that had arrived that day, including a 5 & 6... endless fun placing huge gear!
