Still great, though the lichen is clearing off the line now so it's a little easier to see where to go.

Bizarrely graded HVS 4b in the 2012 guide - this implies some sort of danger which put us off the day before, but after checking UKC comments that evening decided to go back. And it was well worth it - a brilliant route, and I wish I'd had the nerve to lead it! Shame the sun was in the wrong place for any photos - good excuse to go back and do it again. All the gear you could possibly need, but you wouldn't want to hang around too long to place it and it could be interesting getting back on the rock if you fell off - so probably VS 4b. At Peak Scar (which is similarly steep and juggy) it would get HS!

Full value for the grade with wild positions and pretty damn steep but plenty of holds and gear, lovely climbing, well worth doing....
