8m. Pull up through the right hand side of the small overhang to the left of the regular start, then rejoin the parent route.

Awesome route The HVS start is well worth it, then on the last pitch it started absolutely bucketing it down just after the crux, certainly made it all the more intimidating and interesting then abbed down to get gear and rescue seconds with help of Ky and Tom.

One of The best vs/hvs routes I've done. I did the first and second pitches in one. Kc had the pleasure of the top. Gutted he bagsy the last pitch. It was mind blowing on second. Well done mate. U nailed it to.

Not sure if the variation start requires going straight up after gaining the overhang, or traversing out right. I did the latter.

Apparently I did the Hard start...well who would have thought it. Soft touch at HVS, two good runners above your head as you make the move. The old guide book says 4b, but it ain't that either. VS 5a for the variant.
