shocking gear...don't think the flake would hold a fall. Probably is only 5a but it clearly doesn't get done that often so that may make it feel harder. Saying that I thought the crux was leaving the floor without using the mossy slab. Either way, it's a great route, 2 stars.

Great moves, E1 5b** in the new Froggatt guide. 5a is probably about right, the gear is poor and the flake moves a lot! but the quality of the climbing is really nice. I think it is worth the 2 stars as per the guide book.
