5, S1. A line up the wall right of Freeborn Man is popular as a warm-up for the bigger challenges to the left.

Felt easy for the grade. Hard moves are getting off the deck - the steep upper section is juggy and feels great.

Make sure you move into the little corner slightly leftwards to get maximum mileage out of the route, rather than the tempting earlier exit onto Helix.

this probably does feel easy for the grade as you don't have to waste time fiddling gear in to it - the climbing to me felt typical HVS 5a all the way. very enjoyable.
