HS because of the lack of gear not because of the difficulty of the moves. The route it's self is pretty tame, but the only gear I got in the first section was a No.6 dragon (which most people won't have on their racks. The top arête was a little more interesting and managed to swallow dragons No.4 and 5.

Bold at the grade of S 4a which it gets in the definitive guide. HS is a bit more realistic.

Not a bad climb but no gear 'till the top (except maybe a very large cam), not great though.

Bit short on gear placements - so I placed some side runners in Apple crack before tackling the face above the break.

Nicer than it looks. Thuggy start leading to delicate climbing above.

Couldn't find any gear placements so moved to far left and used gear in the crack before attempting the last slab.
