Defo not a 4+. Ended up grabbing runner on last bolt - felt mucho tricky!!!!! Agree, wee bit polished in places...
jules699 - 25/Sep/10 with Rich

Great fun, I'm an HS/VS leader, it was 35 degrees, I was sweating and I didn't notice the polish at all - plenty of grip. Straightforward up to the move left and then a little bit exciting, but it's bolts: give it a go!

penultimate clip tricky but last one a monster. polished feet so need to smear instead and you are pulling up on small crimps that end up at breast height with then nothing near to again pull up. Undergraded. I fell first time I tried it.
