25'. This takes the broad arete to the left of the Hot-shot face directly to a hard finish. In all honesty probably more like HVS 5a!

HVS 4c is closer and maybe a star as although short all the moves are good. Heather needs chopping back at top.

Nice places for gear to begin with but hideous top section~ in hindsight, maybe could have placed some smaller cams or micro nuts
Kim Middlebrook - Lead dog - 25/Aug/12

kept slightly left of arrete. Maybe more HS 4a. Kim had already placed the first gear, I just carried the rope to the top as there was no more opportunity for protection.

There is no way this is VS4b. I would suggest that this has a couple of 5b moves on it and a large runout to the top. I resorted to a top-rope to find out why I was struggling on it.
