Route Grade Votings
Total votes cast 26
Follow either of the previous climbs, but cross the roof rightwards via a thin flake to a tough exit - E1 5b in English.
HVS 5a? WTF?
Think the guide book gives this 5b technical - felt right for its grade. Considering gear is a little sprase (one blue alien) on the actual roof think the route is about e1. Really nice climbing anyway.
A tricky little number, must be worth 5b
I would think most people make the mistake of trying to start up the arete, rather than the proper start to the right. Easy lower climbing followed by good gear and a fun no-hands rest using a toe jam over the roof! No harder than HVS 5a done properly.
Effort is unavoidable for the finish of this safe route. I started up On a Wing And A Prayer, twas fine.
