βeta: If you can jam well and you are fairly flexible then its VS 4C, but if you can't jam then this route is nearly impossible. the crux move is well protected so just go for it!.

βeta: Not sure this is worth 5a? Bit awkward but perfectly fair VS 4c.

βeta: Just my type of climb, really enjoyed it, one piece of gear under the overhang and go for it.

βeta: Did this thinking it was Lieback, laybacked it and thought it was fairly easy (probably easier for the tall). How does a very well protected route with a 4c crux at 6m get VS while a technical poorly protected (i.e. one ok peanut) route, Spider Crack, with a 5m high 5b crux gets VS also (at 8 and 6 metres respectfully neither are sustained). Been away for a while and I had forgotten about the UK’s grading idiosyncrasies.

βeta: If Lieback is VS 4c, then this must be HVS 5b!

βeta: Not that difficult once you find the holds. Good gear, but take care not to block your hand jams. Then put your foot up and go, I wussed out three times before I went for it, only to find it's actually rather nice.

βeta: The hand jam is bomber. I reckon it could be harder if you are really tall (I am 6'4'') as its awkward getting your right foot up. I did the crux eventually but then took my first leader fall. Good Gear! VS 5a in my book. NMM

βeta: Using the left arete makes the crux much easier.
