2nded Matt earlier in the evening but soloed whilst Matt was setting up an abseil to retrieve a runner he dropped in a tree. Not really HVS, even sticking right on the arête as I did, the two cruxs have excellent gear on route without resorting to the VDiff to the left despite what others have said. For instance if you are climbing the arête properly at the top there is a thin crack that takes multiple wires on the right hand side. Good climbing but VDiff is a distraction to the left in places/makes it escapable.

Definitely harder than 1989 guidebook's VS4c - long reaches for less than perfect holds & little/nothing for feet. Inelegant mantel using a knee at the top

Couple of reachy moves

At least 5a, and both cruxes are a long way above gear unless siderunners are used.

Too hard! C. seconded it after I fled up the adjacent VD instead. Possibly VS 5a with a side runner, HVS 5a without?
