e1 5a seems about right in the new rockfax guide. If the high gear placements were slightly better HVS would seem more justified.
Alex Riley - Lead O/S - 01/Apr/14

Top-roped once a few years ago so felt more of an onsight today. Thought it was worth E1. Sustained 5a moves and a tad bold. Good climbing though.

Top roped, climb is fairly easy but there is little to no protection.
