βeta: HVS 5b. VS 5b is a stupid grade given you could easily deck onto your face if you fluff the boulder problem start. Almost as stupid as the E1 6b another route gets...!

βeta: Don't forget after the bottom tricky move to the break this route traverses right then up via the sloping mantle. That in my opinion is the crux move.

βeta: one reachy rockover with left hand to break (the lower pockets seeming useless) when left boot in pocket and right fingertips pushing on right most slot, then plain sailing to the flop out. Good solo.

βeta: i agree with steve c, very hard top-out - belly-flop works! no1 rock and an 'rp' protects the start though, only climbed it because of the unusual grade!

βeta: I think some climbers are missing the fact that the upper section climbs the slab right of Ash Tree Wall...this is not anything like VD.

βeta: If it feels harder than 5b you must be doing it wrong - honest.

βeta: I don't think the top is VDiff. The move over the bulge felt harder than that to me.
