The Curtain Raiser** HVS 5a

Rockfax Description
The thin quartz line in the face to the left of the arete provides the striking line of this route.
Step onto the face and climb the quartz line to a very shallow niche. Above, a slight line of weakness leads right to a ledge and easier climbing up cracks to the top. © ROCKFAX

Looks bold from bottom but was surprisingly quite a bit of gear. Not too great gear though. Beautiful climbing the whole way. I thought hvs 4c
