Rockfax Description
The centre of the wall has a hard start, which is especially so for the short. Once the first runner arrives, it eases. © Rockfax

βeta: Also tempted to say this deserves HVS for the polish (difficulty very condition dependent! - feels very fingery in damp and some of the larger fractures suffer from seepage!), although the holds do improve once at first protection (6m up?) and continue for the remainder of the line. Only got 2 pieces of pro in the whole route so care is needed.

βeta: There is no way this is HVS. The difficult move is off the ground and after that it is easy. The polish just requires careful foot work.
