Great problem, gritstone grip with those feet at half height as you get in a position to go for the top break.

Worthwhile, felt stiff but surely not so desperate when you know where the holds are.

Sort of climbed the prow almost straight on? Really great bit of climbing though

Crimp on the left wall is definitely cheating at V5. Sit start is reachy and probably V5+.

With crimp round the left as per most ascents, would be nice to get the eliminate.

Couldn't take the right hand off, will go with some effort though.
