βeta: It's not sustained enough plus it has great gear so I don't reckon it is HVS. Tough for VS though, nice moves at the top.

βeta: Blimey. You've got to either have bloody mindedness or great jamming technique for this one. I had to make do with bloody mindedness. The best thing about this route is that I've done it and don't have to do it again.

βeta: I personally love jamming but "the least brutal pitch on this part of the cliff" is not true - the top part of the route is tough and it feel like 5a/5b jamming.
