I think I voted HVS when I first did this, but I actually think E1. The crux is pushing (or actually solid?) 5b and the landing's dreadful, then it goes to unprotected 5a. Show me a VS leader who can get up this, and I'll eat my words; a lot of E1 leaders (those who aren't bold) will fail.

I voted HVS 5a when I first did this, now I think E1 5b. Any VS leaders who've done this, raise your hands...

No way is it E1. Much easier and less scary than mitch pitch.

I've been alright on Mitch Pitch but backed off this before now. Odd.
