βeta: The holds on the lower wall tend to push you towards the VS on the right. Going straight up looked desperate. The top wall is great fun.

βeta: Accidentally started up the groove to the L (before traversing back R) which combined with the rest of the route makes it around HVS and more protectable.

beds74 23 Aug, 2015 TR Found this hard, didn't fancy lead with what looked like minimal gear....Tough thin move. If Ringing Groove is 5B then this should definitely get 5C!! Far more strenuous.
