βeta: If you're happy jamming I think this is only 4c. Lovely sustained route

βeta: I really enjoyed this as a warm up, good jams and then jug pulling the rest of the way.

βeta: Getting established in the crack to the right is the crux, the key is to step right and up confidently and jam the crack (two or three jams) to the break.

βeta: Found this quite technical for VS but there again it does let you know what your in for with the 5a bit.Leaving the the ladders needs a sequence of 2/3/jams moving above any gear you got in. The difficulties dont end with the crack either, once youve moved out right your home and dry.Good test if you think your about ready to lead HVS.
