Tried on lead and bottled the move. Couldn't even do it on second, so probably wise!

Cheeky nut throw to protect the crux. "Bomber placement-like a boss" was the exact quote!

Will Mortimer 27/May/15 Lead O/S

Very tough few moves through the roof up to the flake, feels more like 5c to me! But all well protected. Pleased with the onsight.

Didn't even feel close to doing it. Seemed a harder move than on The Flier.

HVS 5b is fair if you're tall, but it still took me about half an hour to figure out the move...

felt easier today , hard move is probably 5c and a bit reach/height dependant as to whether you think its easy or hard

It's all about the feet! Left foot toe hooks low. Right foor egyptians high into break! Took me a while to work that out.

Hard first move! Took quite a few attempts (with backing off) before I managed it.

awesome moves in the crux 5b, but i think more like a 5c as very commiting and technical - great fun. even in 70mph winds and rain!!!
