I'd still give this Severe as in the guidebook although it is well protected and relatively soft for that grade. A lovely climb and a great opportunity to practice jamming if you're new to it. I love it so it was my kind of climb :D

Tricky crux for a V Diff! Very nice considering all of the excavating I had to do.

Scared me coming up second. Would grade it comfortably Severe. Exposed, ace climb and odd, as polished showing former popularity, but covered in heather to show out of fashion.
