Considerably harder for the short. I fell off several times trying to launch upwards from the pocket. NB the Rockfax book has the line of this route drawn in completely the wrong place! You need to start further right than the topo suggests.

Provisional HVS 5b in the CC guide! Nice route. If using the Rockfax guide be sure to start behind the tree where you can slot a wire in to an obvious groove below a pocket, almost from ground level.
