Chuck placed the last few bits of gear for me. 2nd HVS.
alexspurling - Lead β - 05/Sep/15

Agree with past comments, this is scarcely easier than the direct finish and the top is also quite dirty at the moment. Rest of it is superb though.

Have done the direct version before. Actually thought it was easier. Not sure if I missed something but the traverse here felt like 5c climbing

Unwittingly headed up the 5c finish, which felt a bit hard for HVS. Was told mid crux but went for it anyway and fell off, frustrating as if I'd prepared a bit better could have got got it. Finished up to the right.

dprctr - 2nd β - 09/Jun/13 with Len

The lead was fine until I reached the traverse. I made a mistake, went a bit too high and missed the protection on the thin vertical crack for the traverse. Fell on the very hard bit I was trying to traverse. Not a nice fall, but managed to finish the climb anyway, after placing gear in the crack and traversing at the right height. Great route, by the way.

Rock was a bit greasy at the bottom. Quite necky, one of those climbs where holds miraculously appear at the end of your reach just as you need them. Traverse at the top very delicate, the direct finish didnt look much harder.
PaulWatson - 2nd RP - 09/Oct/10 with Fred, Kat

Steep at the start on slimy holds. Middle section is easier. The traverse at the top is the crux with some delicate foot work, the gear is good. Next time iíll try the E1 finish.was harder than BBT or LC. A must do despite the slim at the start!
