Good route. Nice moves at the start. Pretty much no gear until the end. Only placed 2 nuts.

Tried this thinking it was a VS, was a long way to the first gear

Really good climb ...The start is a bit scary because of how high your up with no gear on the mantel shelf part ...then on the arete is bomber for gear ...gear on the climb was bomber. Mike had to ab down to get out a super awsome placed cam....Score!!!

Bouldery start but easier up top. Fun.

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.

a worrying bold mantle onto the ledge scared the crap out of me!

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.
