Maybe it depends how soon you head right, because I found this pretty thin and difficult for HVS, setting off from the flake at the bottom of the groove and climbing the face rather than the arete/groove

i'm not sure the way i did it was hvs and chris said he had to be very strict to avoid using big holds.

Don't think this is 5a. The hardest move on the route is on the Hard Severe bit, and about 4b!
