The blunt central arete of the wall has a thin flake crack running up it. Tricky moves (wires) lead to the beckoning holds, above which things rapidly ease off. © Rockfax

βeta: Nice stuff, but soft touch. The protection is a tiny bit sketchy in places but the low tricky move (easy 5b?) is well protected. If it's an HVS it's only just.
