Definitely 'interesting' as the guidebook hinted (I'd forgotten how to interpret older guidebooks). We were advised not to top out (due to horrific loose bits) by another party on the route so abseiled from the end of the VS bit. Ropes got stuck on pulling so climbed P2 again in both directions to free them. Still, good adventure VS!

finished to top of the crag via a 4b, 3c and 4a pitch. Good route finding will find you at the top without any looseness and good reasonable climbing.
