Yes it's only 4b, but every single move is 4b. Thank god for the good bridging rests and solid jams.

Like many people I was mislead by the Rockfax guide and thought this was the Severe 4a! I was taking Ste out for his first rock climbing experience and promised to find something dead easy and enjoyable. I don't think it ticked either box for him! I enjoyed it though, although VS 4b is definitely more like it than S 4a!

Clean on-sight, but only just. Quite a struggle at the grade with little good gear near the top. 4c gets my vote. No polish though, which was nice.

Very polished. Climbed it about 15 years ago and rememember it being pretty stiff for VS then.

Lead after the two girls tried and stopped at the crux, they thought it was the severe, as did I. Thought it seemed a bit tough at severe!

Okay, but quite in your face and thuggy.
Oliver Branagan - Lead O/S - 31/Oct/09 with Mikey B, Miles M
I led half this route in the mistaken belief that it was Morning Crack S 4a! Ho ho. Pretty sustained and thuggy especially the wider top section and I had to the rest on the rope, struggling to get a hex out . Several loose holds on the horrible short lower wall section...

Climbed under the impression that it was Morning Crack (the topo is wrong). No wonder it felt hard and bold for Severe!
