VS 5a in the guide seemed about right. It's high but the landing is probably ok and the holds are positive. I'll take E1 though

E1 is a bit over the top. Hard 4c/easy 5a?

VS in the book but did feel a bit tougher than that, maybe not E1 though

Nice climbing, but VS 4c seems right if you follow the obvious line.

HVS 5a seems fairish, nice moves though.

The new BMC guidebook has this as VS 4c which is a tad low. I would give it HVS 5a.

The route was known as Problem Wall. I used the arete. I also soloed the slab on the left, known as Problem Slab.
