10m. Climb the left-hand side of the buttress, step left and make precarious moves to stand in the break. Climb rightwards to the overhang and finish to its left.

This kept spitting me off and I was seconding. A very reachy climb and worth a 5b or perhaps 5c for the short. The gear is not the best and the first bit is high off the ground after the first long move from an unbalanced position.

Two hard 5a moves I thought and not too well protected for either of them; I think that makes it HVS 5a probably at the lower end of the grade.
