Rockfax Description
The wide crack is an intimidating struggle for most. Big gear, big arms and a strong will to succeed will help get you up it. Hidden holds in the crack are a great help too. © Rockfax

βeta: Sorry, it's a hard HVS, and no more than that. True, it's rather strenny, but the handholds are generous (esp if you can jam!) and it's well protected. Definite grade inflation going on here, i reckon.
