VS 4c in my guide book and thats what it felt like. not overly tough a few places where you have to commit that the next hold will be good, not much protection at the bottom so glad I didn't lead

Nice, just a bit 'bitty' - good moves but never get into a flow as interrupted with massive ledges. Good for placing gear and resting - so a nice VS for someone's first one I guess.

Tougher than a severe. Used the pipe, not sure if it is legit. Expected to do this as a warm up. Rest of the climb easy enough.

Lead clean on sight. Hard and committing moves to reach the hook, then well protected climbing to reach the half way niche on the left. High runners protect the traverse (looks worse than it is) then bold and juggy climbing, running it out to the top. Belays a little awkward to arrange.

This is definatly not a S 4a and maybe harder even than HS 4b (compaired to 999) i had about 3 bits of deceint gear in and none for the crux. Its a great long route and constantly intereting and challanging. I would rate it VS 4b.infact in the new eastern grit its rated at VS 4c !! That's along way from S.
