PUBLIC LOGBOOKS
This climb is in 252 logbooks, and on 3 wishlists.

Agree that this is HS. No gear on quite a hard thin section of the slab if you stay away from the VD crack on the left.

Hidden - 2nd - 12/Oct/14

HS 4a as per the BMC guide. Rockjfax and BMC show different lines for the start, I took the BMC version (start on the right, move left to the crack, then back right). Didn't really like this route, too much of an eliminate, the crux was avoiding the crack on the left at the start then the arete on the right at the finish.

Started up pizza slab but din't manage to finish it and had to move up left through the crack. Don't do this route if it's really hot, the friction on the slopers is awful.
