Fruichon HS 4b
Essentially protection-less? (Reported by eroica64) however, I believe it may be possible to protect with very large cams (Mark Kemball). A reasonable number of wire and cam placements in the slab on the left in the first 2/3rds. Bold towards the final crack - does take a Friend 4 towards the top - Jay Jackson Sept '13.

A number of very large cams would make this a more reasonable proposition as it was, it felt more like HVS.
