Gonna use this route to sandbag the "It's only an HVDiff" brigade. A tricky little number for the grade encompassing a wide variety of different techniques. Namely arm barring, laybacking, bridging and plain old thrutching. Would warrant an upgrade to Severe 4a if it was more sustained. However, with the mid-way ledge to break it up, it definitely sits at the top-end of HVD - maybe it should be HVD 4a.
