The start took a bit of work (definitely start up the left crack then move right) but was a lot of fun. From the ledge up it looks easy but topping out was quite scary!

Very bouldery start - Felt at least 4c maybe even 5a, but not V, after tricky start, theres plenty of holds and gear - S or HS, 4c or 5a seems closer than VS 4b.

Took the left hand crack to start, feels like a bouldering problem. Topping out was a bit suspect until I found the magic hold!

Not terribly good. A very hard start, and easy middle, and an awkward but very short finish. More like HS 4c.
