Bridge the groove and crack just left of the central roofs to a perplexing exit to easy ground.

A nice technical problem though pretty stiff at VS 4c. A good VS 5a or possibly harder IMO. Get to the top of the lay-back (?) crack (a struggle) only to find it isn't all over yet!

5a move to lay off the crack, tuck knees under chin and scrabble wildly with free hand to locate a positive hold. Perhaps should've bridged it instead.

Yeah I fell off this one second. A hard move to reach good holds from the overhang. Possibly 5a.

uummm stiff at 4c poss especially if your short, good gear above your head for the tricky move though.Agree with ealier comment dont think the layback is the end of the struggle.

Gets hard just as you think you've finished. I mantled it & it felt very precarious

A good nut protects the crux, I found a high foothold under the overlap which helped considerably (although being a goon I had to ask someone to point out where it was)... a pokey little VS, well wothwhile!
