8m. Gallop up the narrow wall just right.
Not an awful lot of protection after the break and balance is required with a good reach to the top to escape the face
E0 for sure
I thoroughly enjoyed this. My fourth HVS, but I felt very confident before starting and had prepared my partner to run backwards with a bit of low gear in too. Not that I was planning to come off, but with the contingency plan I didn't have to think about the fall while I was working out the bold moves. You certainly have to stay focussed on this one!
I really enjoyed this climb one of my first HVS leads, but it felt low in the grade or I was well prepared. Not sure which. Basically there is one tricky move high above you last gear placement.
Just discovered that the topo line in the book is wrong for this, it should be a little further left (as per the BMC guide)
