More like a bold Severe than VS+, which I assume is given becasue of the so-so gear in the upper part. Some reasonably nice moves but not 2 stars worth.

I found this a lot harder than I should have done for the grade. (sounds like I wasn'ton the route) Nice holds, it's just trying to find them. There is enough gear, although most of it isn't brilliant. Belays are far back from the top. Probably the most similar climb is Heather Wall at Stanage.

Tanya Savage - Lead - 02/Jun/11 with Neil Pacey

Nice climb, great single pitch route, but soft touch for 4c, felt more like 4b and with good gear. Not sure why it's so far up the graded list and given VS+.
