10m. The groove just right with a jutting tombstone is a bit of a contrast to most things hereabouts, though it still requires advanced gritstone 'udging' techniques by most. Keep to the right of the initial rib.

The hardest V.Diff I've ever done. And I've done a few!

is this description wrong?! there is an E1 5c that goes up somewhere here apparently, and the start of the route we did was way harder then HVD.

Back and foot it. HVD that way.

Agreed. I have bad technique and found it hard work. My second has good technique and found it easy. Probably HVD done properly.

Not to bad if you climb it traditionally with using all parts of your body

Soloed this, bit harder than I banked on. Severe I reckon.

Harder than it looks, S 4b probably about right.
