Worth doing, with some good bits in the second half, as long as you're prepared to put up with the dirt and loose rock on the first half (and a little bit in the second half, too). Lots of gear after the first 5m.

Some worthwile moves. It was unclear whether there was/ is an in situ ab at the top, so used the convenient sport lower-off to the right.

Loose at top. Two brilliant threads so feels very safe

Unfortunately a nest of very tiny baby birds was on the route, so decided not to climb past them, they were in a foothold plus I didn't want to knock rocks onto them.
