HVS 5b in 2004 BMC guide - VS 4b is a fairer grade.

Andy Clarke 17/Jun/17 Sent x

Highballed. Quite technical arête climbing. Cleaned off some veg and scrittle. I think HVS 5a/b is fair: unprotected crux moves are too hard and too high for much down-grading. Looked a fair way down to the mat. Maybe it's getting confused with Curvature - also the L side of a slabby arête, but on the smaller, lower-angled, pointy boulder another 5m towards the end of the ridge.

Fun enough, but very much not HVS or 5b.

I thought 4b - unless I did Curvature by mistake
