The easiest line up the wall following a good natural line, that was seriously undergraded at VS 4c, and is actually E2 5a. Start on a turf stance part way up the corner, and climb the distinct flake to a ledge on the right. A crucial small friend on this ledge is the only gear for committing and serious slopey slab moves to gain the ramp up and left, and proper gear 10m after the ledge. Teeter left and finish carefully up the rib.

Tried to lead. Huge run out on the traverse from the ledge on the right to get to the ramp. And first pieces of gear behind a bad hollow moving flake.

Good climbing but a bold mid-section. Because of the way we'd rapped in I was able to use the rap rope for a runner before the leftwards traverse (and couldn't resist!). As it turned out it is 'all there' but it was nice not to have to contemplate a nasty fall. Definitely more HVS 4c than VS!

Poor gear, serious, I would agree with Pete-HVS 4b.

Pete led. Boldest route of the day. If you're happy virtually soloing a big pitch of 4b/c on sometimes suspect rock then the VS grade might be about right.
