really nice slab climbing that felt perfect for my height with lots of high steps on fairly positive holds. Really glad I soloed it as there was no gear anyway and placing side runners would have been a bit weird

HVS 5b in the new guide felt about right (without side runners).

Bit of a silly eliminate really...better to solo than lead...I led it and used protection, but it just felt wrong using another line (albeit protection only)...quite hard moves though!
