Very slim on good gear, used 2x micro's! Climbed in front of a group of royals on a bus tour, tough crowd. Probably low end 4c or high end 4b.. VS, maybe easy HVS due to lack of good gear.

Really nice although the gear is a bit sparse throughout the middle section, might as well have soloed it.

A bit of a messy route - difficult not to either end up in either stepped wall to the left or little hopper to the right. Gear not great towards the second half but not that bad either.
