Not low in the grade I would say. Fell off the crux twice and both times I decked. The gear is at your feet when your likely to pop and even with amazing belaying you'll still end up with your feet back on the ground

Technically straightforward, but gaining the half height ledge is rather bold, so soft HVS seems fair.

nice moves, probably better when dry, given how easily I climbed it in its quite damp state (only one tricky move low down due to damp/green holds) I'd say it would be very soft at HVS in the dry.
