Been putting this one off for years. The gear is actually ok but i just didn't feel there was any redundancy. Moves are fine for HVS 5b once you work them out.

tiring on the fingers, and a very committing move to leave the thin crack. Took me ages to convince myself it'd work. I've definitely done E1s which felt easier.
