Paul S led this. I went third with a very loose rope as was thinking about soloing it, but didn't in the end. VS in the new gritstone guidebook, rightly so. HS is inaccurate. Bold.

Felt tough for VS and HS is a total sandbag. Great moves (you wouldn't argue with 4c) but a fair runout from the halfway gear to the next decent kit just before topping out

Pippa got out onto rib, with gear in horizontal break, but didn't want to finish (ground fall potential) and I had to tie off and go round and rescue.

No gear after flake.

Thought about Spellbinder but lack of gear and fingertip skin encouraged the easier option.

Gets HS 4b in the North England Rockfax and felt like a sandbag at that grade. Still no giveaway at VS 4b but a good route nonetheless.

Scary stuff. Not sure if I took the easiest line but it felt more like 4c than 4b.
