βeta: How could anyone say this route is poorly protected. There are bomber wire placements all the way up. Firstly there's a no1 on the nose of the bulge and then a sinker no 6 above the bulge (can be placed from below). Another couple of medium wires protect the rest of the route. Adam, what route were you on? A fine HVS 5a.

βeta: Again, if harvey the login stealing ruiner found this hard for HVS you can probably drop the ´V´to get the correct grade.

βeta: Really satisfying climb - short but with a bit of everything... Awkward gymnastic moves off the ground round the bulge and tricky step right followed by slightly off-balance slab climbing. protection is ok - just enough there.. Trekkie June 05

βeta: Maybe low in the grade but is still definately HVS 5a, great moves all the way and poor protection with a couple of really small friends (1/2 and 3/4). Great route.
