βeta: Im likeing these comments since I thought it was probably soft for HVS, I must be getting better :) I did find it pretty strenuous towards the top though, pumpy.

βeta: Nice route seconded it as i dont enjoy cracks too much but you dont spend much time in the crack, thug up the bottom then layback the flake, i only used the crack for balance.

βeta: My second HVS and would have to say the first real one. Proper stuff this not a top end VS. Leaving the safety of the flake may prove difficult...the crux. Went and did tody's wall after this,felt like 4b compared to P/crack

βeta: My first HVS onsight, loved every minute of it. Never too hard but it keeps coming at you. Long legs might get you a rest level with the roof on the right.
