This was meant to be an easy warm-up to an evening's climbing but was actually quite a formidable challenge in the wind and ended up being the only climb of the evening. I lead the route from the right-hand alternative start (straight up the quarried corner). I would grade this as VDiff or Severe. Certainly harder than Diff. Very enjoyable route.
