βeta: Much easier than the Chant which is HVS 5a i think. 4c is generous! A fairly average route really. Worth a go.

βeta: the flake takes a tri cam, forget the size which is pretty bommer and also a decent nut, still felt right at hvs 5a

βeta: Gear is good you can get a couple of small nuts in the lay back without loosing hand holds, my second took a while to get them out - they would have held! Don't try cams, which I saw someone attempt.

βeta: This is probably quite reach dependant. For the average/tall person (I'm 5'11") it is a very easy undertaking at the grade.

βeta: think with the gear being down at the bootom of the lay back means could be quite a fall on a bad landing, so hence hvs. easy 5a but think graded right.better landing may make it a boulder problem

βeta: More like a boulder problem than a route...but I wouldn't like to fall off it! Well worth doing, and my first HVS.

βeta: Lovely little route. Felt about 5a and a bit soft for HVS, but probably not a VS.

βeta: Nice route, quite easy for the adj grade perhaps (one long stretch etc) but surely 5a and quite strenuous.
