Excellent and reachy. Follow Legacy (or better Big Brother) to the middle of its traverse then cruise up the centre of the wall to finish up a short crack. The Direct Start is a stretchy E1 6a protected by small opposition wires. Remember, where there's a will, there's a way.

not really sure this is E1. felt right at HVS

The direct start is extremely height dependant, when done normally a very delightfull route. Probably low in the grade.
John Camateras - 09/Aug/04

Starting from Big Brother and traversing the break left makes a better start with a fair bit of independent climbing which is steep and pumpy, and leads straight into the crux of Legacy. A fully fledged E1*** that way.
Jon Stewart - 12/Aug/07

Jon Stewart is right, best started from BB and traverse left. Has a good start move and a fun independent traverse then. Overall probably benchmark E0, too safe for E1 but too sustained for HVS. Good route.
