First climb of 2013 - backed off the top bit as it felt quite exposed - long reach for the flake. Agree that it felt more like S/HS at the top. My gear popped and hold broke off so it was a bit stressful

A good route, better, harder, and bolder than it looks. Initial wall is unprotected, the traverse has interesting route-finding with some nice climbing, a little (avoidable) loose rock, and less vegetation than expected. S 3c or maybe even HS 4a but low in the grade?
