Bouldery start but easier up top. Fun.
Dr Toph - Solo O/S - 15/Oct/09 with Ed

Is VS 4c in my Lowland Outcrops. There's no way i'd commit myself to that mantle move with only 1 useless microwire for protection. Should be HVS 5a due to bad protection and chance of really hurting yourself if you deck out on the pointy rocks.

In the guide as VS, the first section did fell very scary with no good gear and some committing moves. Nice route, would prob give it HVS.
