Pitch1 easy 5a more like 4c if that but very nice climbing up the wall above. Pitch 2 requires blinkers to avoid the corner and harder than 4b at the top especially with no gear which is what the guide implies. Pitch 3 requires a very artificial move right to gain the inferior pocketed crack.

More like HVS I'd say - top pitch was definitely more than 4b perhaps 4/5a
Tom Hutton - 2nd - 28/Aug/12 with Huw Gilbert

Bouldery start up the pillar, steep face above is easier than it looks, slab above that is easy. really enjoyable 1st pitch, comfortable belay, then a walk up to the next face, steady 4b climbing on pockets but no protection AT ALL. Pitch 3 up the crack is fine until the step right to the pocket crack, bad gear and vegetated, did not enjoy...

Did 5a pitch at start but route for other pitches quite hard to follow.
