Sword of Gideon is in the guide books as VS 4c, not VS 4b so crag moderator should change it to be accurate as the crux is 4c.|

There is a fair bit if loose choss on this otherwise great crag. Take care with the belay after pitch 1 of Bumblytwo(Severe), the trees are dead and thin so well dodgy, and the block belay moves with a little push.
