Not sure about the grade - probably 5a tech, but less sure about VS/HVS distinction. Decent rock and gear, then some stiff moves to pass the overhang.

Oh crap, really shouldn't have climbed this as the first climb of the evening. Very pumpy, and there's a sequence at the top, once you've found the right handholds.
