A really good, unsung climb up the buttress to the right of the start of The Louisiana Rib.

Is this HVS or E1? Hard thin moves over perilously far away gear, very enjoyable!

Some nice climbing, and quite hard if you stay dead center but it would be very brainless on the lead.

I thought this felt bold for HVS so not surprised to see it on here at E1. Hard move low down for the short then lovely technical climbing above. Shame the line isn't more independent as it detracts somewhat.

Did the middle bit of Acheron and decided I was glad I chose not to lead it properly.

Nice run out climbing with positive holds where you need them.

after backing off acheron, so reused lower gear. quite a long run out on crux section although gear below it is good. found it quite unnerving!

Some approximation to this route anyway. Strayed left onto Louisiana rib near the bottom, but kept the direct line higher up

Too bold to be HVS surely...

Maybe I did this wrong, but it felt very hard in the grade. Placed gear in the second break and that was it until I reached the place where it joins the VS. A number of thin moves between gear.
