In the guide as HS. Nice route, start of second crack is a bit cheeky.

Lower chimney nice and quick, followed by a quick traverse to upper chimney. Upper chimney a real git- starting move to get beyond the outward bulging section horrid. Left lots of skin in the crack- escaped up easy left chimney as was getting dark.

The bottom chimney is straight forward, but the top groove/crack is a lot more strenuous. Probably why it is given VS.

Soloed thinking it was a severe and not understanding why it was so over graded. VS is a bit of a stretch.

Fun start. Slightly overhanging narrow chimney start with positive holds left and right. Second half is a bit disjointed though.
