βeta: One of the more "route-y" climbs in the area, but how on earth do you get 4b out of the first rockover from the ground? No. Easy VS, 4c/5a, and quite nice.

βeta: The move felt like 5a to me and I wouldn't disagree with VS either as it is similar to other VSs at this crag.

βeta: Agree with previous comment, this is much easier than other VS's on the crag. More like Severe 4b/c. Nice route all the same.
