Not enough juice left to get through the move. Lobbed off and was grateful for an unexpectedly clear fall line.

Soft for E1, the grade it's given in the definitive guide.

Droyd 18/Apr/17 Lead dnf

Figured out the move but was unwilling to commit due to lack of gear higher than my feet (and that disgusting fall), so backed off. No idea how this is supposed to be safe, presumably I missed something (a thread?) or a placement has broken.

Sagged onto the rope once while figuring out the crux, once deliberately to test a possible micro-cam placement (no).

Just one interesting and taxing move. Protected by a bomb proof thread at knee height if you can be bothered to wangle the sling through. Can't see why people would say E1. Seemed like a pushover at HVS.
