βeta: Seemed quite easy for a 4? Big juggy grips with plenty of friction, a nice location right next to the sea with a nice view - great at sunset. I was mobbed by sandflies on the belay though. If anything the scramble under the slab wearing trainers and getting my rucksack through was harder than the climb itself(although obviously I didn't do the climb in the trainers).
