Took more lead falls on this than I've taken in the rest of my trad 'career' combined. Might be VS 5b if you're 6ft plus, but I'm inclined to agree with the old grading - E1 6a if you're average height or below. Good route regardless, well worth doing.

Was listed as E1 6a when I did it, VS 5b/c is probably right. No difficulties once past the crux at 8 feet
