Side runner in Camperdown Crawl seems a reasonable assumption at the VS grade. Crux move seemed 5a.

start is interesting especially for the short
AielSavage - Lead O/S - 2011

No protection over crux move. Damp rock so didnt want to deck it. Put wire in Camperdown Crawl and climbed to break where I could thread a sling and provide top rope protection for the move. Felt a lot easier this way!
jonny_098 - TR O/S - 02/Nov/10 with George Lewtas

PaulHermes - AltLd - 24/Oct/10 with Tibor

Much harder than the attached VS, but assuming you can place gear in that the VS grade is fair. Probably only 5a unless you are very short.

Month a guess. Much easier than the 5c right-hand start.

Tough start as the ground is retreating away from the lowest holds...favours the tall!
