βeta: Found quite easy for the grade, good gear and a bomber nut in the second crack once placed just go for the top!

βeta: found the crux very hard on my fingers, holding on to figure out the next move should have dropped back to the ledge and rested but went for it on tired arms and fell onto gear

βeta: Comfortable HVS compared to some others I have done and the hard moves can be protected ok from below to be able to pull through the crux and finish easily

βeta: i'd agree that after the initial cracks things ease that you don't really need gear. quality route that seems to end a bit early. it's a bit strenuous around the crux for placing gear so i found myself retreating to the ledge for a quick rest!!!
