Had a go on this just to see how I would get on and loved it. Didn't commit to the final move or two though and should at least have made a bit of an effort. One I think I'd like to lead. Has now been added as a new climb "BS" and re-graded so I've added notes on that as well.

Sent our 7a sports climber up this one to grade it and after 5 attempts he managed it. No ways is this VS 5a,we reckon on the lines of E3/4 6a. OR the picture in the guide book is wrong and the actual climb is further right again which looks more do-able.

No way is this VS 5a, E3 6a at the least. Don't let the large sharp flakes lure you into a false sense of security,the moves after the flakes are hard.Tried 6 time down climbing each time to save the onsight,will look at again in a hundred years or so.

Really big flake holds to start off with, but are sharp. Didn't have the balls or strength reserves to go for the dyno move.
