Had to perform the amazing magic trick of making myself at least 2 inches thinner to finish this climb, came out of the top of it greener than the incredible hulk.

eliminated the block on the left to start (much harder - around a f6b boulder start)

Been walking past this for years and always put off due to the green. However, Chris recommended it to me today - loved it...

Simple climb, nothing fancy. Wet and greasy in the rain.

Hard start to this HVD. Probably more like S. Wouldn't want to be too fat to get out of the top!
