βeta: the gear is solid, and the moves are fair at the grade.

βeta: Did this again today after a gap of 10 years, I always thought it very hard for the grade, found another way of doing the crux which makes it much easier. I'm only 5' 7", the gear is also good.

βeta: It's a really nice route. It's probably a little height dependent; for the short E1 might be fair.

βeta: Don't you lot own any Peenuts or small cams?!?! Easy for HVS with good gear where it's needed. Nice moves though, good for it's short height.

βeta: E1 for. a good nut slot low down is not of much use then a technical move to flat hold from which to try and place runners(which are good) for the finish without getting horrendously pumped while a long way of the ground. Very nice moves above your gear lead to the top .

βeta: 2 bits of poorish gear with 5b climbing. HVS I think not.

βeta: How is 5b technical climbing, above quite poor runners that are stenuous to place HVS? I've definately climbg E1's harder than this. Good route though!
