Not sure how either start could be 4b or 5b (as Rockfax has them). Did the undercut start, where there's a big jug over your head, a bit of balancing then more uber-jugs.

Guide book said VDiff. Certainly didn't think the start was VDiff but the top was pretty straight forward.

Fun start (opted to come at it from under the roof). Top section is a ladder, and I'd soloed it before as it's also part of The Promenade (to this climb's left). Jen belayed me but Dan seconded the route.

I can't see how you can possibly access the slab in the bottom right corner at 5a. The undercutting start is great, though.
