First E4, well protected and really enjoyable.
It is a bit run out going over the top but your on jugs and good feet by that point, thank god for the plants over the barrel to grab onto though.

Big deal for me hardest route I have been on - given beta as I climbed but clean and no falls despite being totally pumped.

First E3. Definitely 6a! Technical and bold top out. Alot harder than i would have expected for E3!
22/06/2014 : After discussing this route with someone else we have both concluded its E4 6a.

really nice route, took a rest at mid height, but felt surprisingly steady apart from a slip off at the very start

Blew the onsight when a hold broke off. came back the next day and lead it. good to do it ground up.

Ran out of small cams before the last hard moves, which made it extra piquant. Much better route than it looks from the ground.
Dr Toph - Lead O/S - 17/Apr/10 with Davide
Flashed with shouting from Beta meister Neil.Superb moves and a dicey tiptoe at the finish line.Would love to lead it.
Sean Bell - TR β - 26/Oct/09 with Neil, Scott
Really annoyed i top-roped it, should have manned up and gone for the lead. Some really awesome moves on it!
Not sure its quite E4 though.

The guidebook description is a sandbagging pile of claptrap for this climb. Without giving too much away:
1) The gear really isn't hard to place.
2) A mention of an easier alternative finish makes no sense to me at all.
3) The hard move it mentions near the top is definitely full brit tech 6A.
4) A pretty strong friend of mine who has adopted the habbit of declaring every single trad lead he has done as being overgraded by at least 1 grade lowered off the crux and was firmly asserting that it was a proper sandbag at the grade of E3 5C. (which made me feel a little better about taking several attempts to get the crux move).
We think it's E4 6A :)
