8m. The right-hand crack is gained from the right. Again the start is quite problematical especially for the short (5c?).
The start is hard if you're short so maybe HVS, but protection comes thick and fast further up so the tension eases. Quite pumpy at the top if you're weak like me.
Yippee! and thank feck for that. My first clean "HVS" lead at Curbar. Bouldery start, then gentle jamming with bomber gear to the top.
kept falling off the bottom but eventually heaved myself up, up and over, totally pumped by the top. great hand jams in top crack and the final flop over is less then photogenic.
I got the start easily but the top crack did for me! I think I spent too long sorting gear out and had to sit on it right at the top. Bummer!
Start definitely felt more like 5c. Good landing though, HVS.
