Nice route. The ironstone hold on the left side is really nicely placed and makes a good placement for a sling.

Bold to start, the hardest climbing is before the first gear, half way up the initial arete. Possibly HS 4a?

come on this is never an HS unless maybe you are over 6 foot? Found the bottom half reachy as hell and really tricky had to dyno twice- hardly a stable of the HS category??? Still nice climb don't get me wrong but the grades on this crag are a bit optimistic?
