With the Wedge Rib finish. Start felt easier than 5a, unless you're not allowed to use the foothold on the right or something?

Probably not the best choice for a first proper VS lead, but it was definitely interesting, and after this everything else felt easy

Be aware that there the block just after the first vertical crack and at the start of the blank slabby face is showing signs of movement. Especially if used as a side pull according to my second. (No need to use as a side pull by the way)

Felt much easier than 5a, although the gear for the crux is behind a slightly worrying sounding block. VS 4b?

The only hard bits were at the bottom and at the top, but the middle is boring - you could basically scramble up. Like climbing 2 very short routs
