Jimbo backed off under the overhang and I completed it on first attempt on his gear. Not a real on-sight, but still managed to figure the crux on my own.

Did this after bailing off Tensile Test. Nice line with great climbing. Good gear below the roof, but the last moves feel bold.

guidebook says VS, definitely felt hard for that grade, still not sure about HVS (probably very height dependent, I'm short)

reach is not that long, just requires a slightly dynamic appproach if short! No way is this HVS, VS 4c in my guide and felt like a soft touch at that.
