This climb is in 11 logbooks, and on no wishlists.
Avoided the difficult start by starting to the right - seemed much more sensible at the grade especially given the amount of grass in the direct start. Followed what I thought was the most likely line thereafter althought he BMC guide is far from clear.

Some wacky stuff going on hereabouts in the guidebook. The start is hard, in the awkward mold, although not 4c, and not out of character for a "traditional" VDiff, prob Nettle crack should be in at Vdiff 4a. The line description and topo line do not match at all, a traverse 5m right only makes sense, if you decide to arbitarily first travese 5 m left beyond the second tree, or if the finish is meant to be to the right of the original crack, in which case it is drawn way out on the BMC topo. In any case, the logical route goes straight up from the tree, then pulls through the roof on obvious jugs and flake before a step left to avoid the capstone. This makes it HS 4a on the money for me. Have to say Agden rocher section of the BMC guide looks like an afterthought, which is a shame as the climbing is good.

Despite the meandering line, the climbing is excellent throughout. Technical crux is getting off the ground, mental crux is the exposed traverse at the top.
