Nice moves with quite sparse gear. Seems like a mid VS.

Good to see it's a VS on here, and not a HS, like in the guide. All the holds are there, but it's a little pumpy.

Tricky one this. Probably is much easier to solo it than lead as the gear is awkward and maybe not great, but it is a decent enough height onto pointy rocks, so....
