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

Uncomfortably high first piece of gear to say all of the 5b moves are in the first five metres. Some beta from Jimmy.

I've voted 'Easy HVS' just for the level of commitment needed before the first piece of gear.

Could not do the first move, had help on the rope. Then I finished the rest of the route.
