The groove is the best route of its grade at the crag. Climb the first few feet of A Different Kind of Hypertension before embarking on some committing moves into the groove (peg). Tricky moves up the groove lead to a second peg. Finish direct to a lower-off. There is a direct start which pushes the grade up to E4 6a.

I've voted "easy 6a" but did it in very hot greasy conditions it may well be 5c. Well protected.

yup, it ain't 6a, especially using raging storm as a 5c yardstick! just a little care needed on the traverse as the fall could be interesting, after that very pleasant corner climbing.
