The traverse point near the top was not obvious - I first attempted a lower traverse, which turned out to be at least 6a (hence didn't). It is graded as HVS 5a in the current definitive guidebook. I found the opening move was 5b. Then exposed and committing 5a moves relying solely on the gear placed in a hollow flake follow. Hard HVS 5b. Shame the top section is a bit artificial.
