With a very enjoyable fall while trying to top out! The downside was it meant doing the crux again since I ended up below it.

Tough little route , pumpy towards the top , rather grubby start and exit . Some good cimbing in between

glad to find other people think this is tough for VS 4b. Almost came off but just about managed to down climb it to a rest.

Fell off on first attempt after getting stuck in an awkward position between the two cracks. God knows what I was doing. An inauspicious start to the day! Much easier second attempt, stuck to the left hand crack only and it felt more like the VS warm-up I was looking for..
