βeta: HVS 5b in Bancroft's Recent Developments 1977, when I soloed it ground up - no mat. Interesting that it would now be impossible to vote for either grade as they are off the bottom of the scale.

Graeme Hammond 4 Oct, 2016 Solo RP Retro flash, done above pads. Felt easy tonight, walk feet up and jam the left foot in the crack and it is much nearer to (or even) 5c to get to the break than the 6b given in the BMC guide. Class micro route/very highball problem :)
