very nice route, excellent gear, placing of wire placement just before crux moves quite pumpy

Narrative verdict: Pre placed gear, so not the full tick. Chris was bold enough to embark on this most excellent crack, having exhausted himself placing lots of gear, he retired to let me finish .

Climbed to two thirds and couldn't get through crux lay backing, got pumped and came down so Silas could take over. He finshed the lead jamming and smearing the crux. I seconded climb to removed the gear and jammed and smeared to finish.

A really good route. Felt like honest HVS rather than hard for the grade.

Not 'brutal' as described in new guide. Middling HVS crack-climbing.
