Another Chris Craggs thugfest - but this one leads you directly to a couple of lovely mini-Friend placements on the upper wall (before you head Left). More of a 5a HVS than 5b VS. Enjoyed it, whatever grade it is.

Not sure why we gave this one 5b. It is no harder than Randy's Wall and probably easier than Gunpowder Crack. Worth HVS maybe just for the gear.

Bloody tough start, easy peasy after that!
