I lead this one. Possibly slightly more technical than Icy Crack, but not a lot in it. Low 5a whereas that is high 4c. :) Crux towards the top but well protected.

Everything that's wrong with Stanage; route compression and polished holds. Had to escape the crux by stepping a foot right onto the neighbouring Diff route. Horrible.

Again (like Icy Crack) if you're strict it's more like HVS 5A, although easily escapable
