I went for the lead first, I took the "go left" bit a little too literally and did not try to use the hold up right to make that move at all. As expected, got boxed doing that. Seconded it clean after Olly took the lead.

Felt like it was edging into E1 territory was I just tired?

Nice route that's not E1 I think. Enough gear to still be top end HVS.

HVS 5b my foot, this is E1 of anyone's money. I didn't have the balls to rockover above the flake and ended up slapping out high right for a horrible high side pull at about 5c. Mike seconded it in the correct style. Gear for the crux was okay bu pumpy to place and below your waist when you start the move. Wouldn't have wanted to fall rocking over: a massive sandbag at HVS.
