Getting to the top of the crack and then leaving it is a hard sequence - harder than I'd expect on a VS. Unfortunately not a pleasant or satisfying sequence. Dirty, too. A fine heather-pulling top-out, if you like that kind of thing.

lower section quite tough. 5a seems fair.

Hard move left into the cave especially in the balmy March heat wave. Top slab has a easy couple of pulls and then plenty of gear. mud bank at the top not as bad as expected. Worth doing.

Fell off like an idiot, lowered to the ground and did it second go. The jamming was fine, but the move left at the top felt hard for 5a

If this is 5a, I think the poor gear on the first part of the slab might make it HVS.
