Get out if this is a VS!!
Seconded just about, lead by a very strong Paul Donnithorne, who would give the grade at least E1...and so would I.
Block above were you would have swung out right from has fallen, so thin moves can be taken from the spike above the triangular overhang, to jugs on the right block.

First did this in 1996. Found it harder 18 years later! Enjoyable and quality, but the lower part packs a punch & I see from here now that a decent hold under the overhang has gone. Hard at the top too! Knee squirming! Top end VS 4c

Brilliant route. Varied, with sustained interest throughout. The tree at the top is totally hollow and won't be there for many months more. It'd take a braver man than me to an off that - there are at least 2 other an points within 10m which are much better.

Great route, made a little harder due to a nice flake laying at the bottom of the route and not where it was when the route was set
lakeyross - Lead O/S - 29/Apr/13
Good route, the step left from beneath the roof made a little harder by the fact the main exit hand hold is on the floor at the bottom, nice little traverse above and just when you think you're done...there's a little more good climbing to the top.
The abseiling tat could do with replacing soon.

Hard crux moves probably towards the upper end of the grade, but stupidly well protected with a clean comfy fall space. No reason not to get on it-the climbing is really fantastic! Polish in this case is comforting, showing you foot sequences, and doesn't add to the difficulty at all.
