The fine right-trending groove is sustained and awkward. Despite the good protection it is high in the grade.

i found the first few moves the hardest but thought it pretty strenuous all the way. a good climb that's easier if you just keep moving.

Found this quite desperate and sustained for the grade. Hard to place gear and bold at the start for VS 5a.

Agree with neil c, i seconded this after climbing barons wall and found it very hard for VS 5a.

Not really bold at all and the start is over-graded at 5a, no more than 4c. However, sustained and quite tough for VS I reckon, much harder than it looks high up. Got pretty pumped.

Seemed pretty hard for VS, very pumpy placing gear, only managed to get 2 dodgy cams at half height before committing to some tricky moves above, so was very happy to get a big bommer cam towards the top.
