βeta: Yes, a one move wonder so no stars, I found it quite a hard move (though I'm fairly short), but with a good cam just below it, HVS 5b seems about right

βeta: as a matter of interest, Bendomium, are you tall or short? I led this route and thought the move reasonably low end 5a. I'm 5'6". My buddy, following, had a nightmare on that same move. He's 6'3".

βeta: Did this today as my first "HVS", and am interested to see its now E1 in BMC - agree this seems a bit silly. A one move wonder, but brilliant move. A star at least just for that.

βeta: I agree with Nick. Interesting that this route has been upgraded to E1 in the new Stanage Guide.

βeta: The move through the scoop is tricky, but the rest of the route is very easy, and not very interesting, unfortunately. Don't feel it deserves a star. Possibly VS 5b.

Droyd 18 Apr, 2017 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.
