Really enjoyed this with a finish straight up the left headwall after the central crack. (This may be the "holiday quartet" finish?)

Did feel somewhat harder than the Vs 5a claimed by the definitive guide. Not convinced by HVS 5b, though.

The guidebook describes this as protectionless, it isn't unless you're being very strict. Felt like HVS 5a.

Nice moves, not sure they are too much better than meiosis though, and it only really has two independent moves. oh well.

Felt more like HVS 5b/a than the VS 5a suggested in the guide. The move to the break is tricky, reachy, and you'd hit the ground if you messed it up. Finished up Holiday Quartet.

Taking a direct route to the crack felt like 5b with a reachy move to the main break. It looked slightly easier (5a?) to take a line to the right.

After Dave followed taking gear out of the 1st crack of the 'standard' Central Trinity there was no reason to not try the direct and then clean the gear from the second crack.
