Committing - one piece of low gear would not stop you hitting the ground on the crux move.

Given VS 4c in the latest BMC guide, which is odd, because a) it's easier than 4c and b) it shares all of the hard climbing with Rubber Band, which is VS 4b in the same guide. Either way it's a bit short lived, and there's no gear until you're at the top after all difficulties.
