Rockfax Description
A significant route from the early 80s. It is now climbed in one pitch as an easy 8a. A few wires are required for the easy middle section. The first pitch (a good 7c+ in its own right) is fingery and bouldery, and the upper section provides a nice contrast, being powerful and sustained in a great position but quite loose in places. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
An additional bolt has since been placed in the middle and the climbing is easy if not a little loose.

Went back to have a look at the top pitch. Sussed the first moves, but need to come back for a look at the rest.

Had a couple of cursory plays on the first groove. Well above my level but the moves were at least doable.

Probably not 8a but the moves through the top roof make the route. Used the high heel mentioned in Jerry's book.
