Just a couple of moves on p2 but I think they do deserve to get 5a. We did in 2 pitches but would be a better route done as 1.

did as a single pitch - probably a better climb because of it. Defintely 5a move half way up the second pitch, so if you can't do 5a in an exposed location you will be in trouble.

Disappointing climb. Contrived line, first pitch about V diff, second has at most two 5a moves and is very short.

I must say I have some sympathy for those who say this should be HVS 5a. The crux move on pitch two is hard and committing and I didn't think there was good gear at that point. But I suppose something has to be the hardest VS in the area....

Good route in a good location. I finished direct from the groove, I'm not sure if I should have gone right at the very top but finishing direct felt about right for grade (VS+ in the latest FRCC guide) though the gear was not great at this section. Misty and slightly damp.
