βeta: Did I do the same climb as you guys? Wander up bit at bottom, put some gear in, do the 5a move to get established in the groove then up lovely groove to top. Gear seemed fine, not a hard climb for HVS.

βeta: Can't really comment on the grade, as my climbing partner had to back off it after finding no gear. Given the apparent lack of protection for 20 ft it looks very committing. Bit of a sandbag?

Stuart Hurworth 23 Jul, 2014 2nd RP Difficult move to gain the groove, hand hold is in awkward position to use the footholds! Fell off twice, but fingers were spent after Flake Crack. Managed it afterwards and didn't seem that bad, requires good balance above all else. Rest of climb is still interesting but markedly easier. Not much gear!
