Pleasant climb but 4a my arse.Would be a decent trad VS but lower off is in a dodgy spot and would have been better a foot lower.

Couldn't be bothered with the last move as I was pretty knackered after a couple of attempts at pushing my grade

Really great route - my favourite of the lower grade routes at the crag. A bit pumpy, but the big holds just keep appearing. Dunno why some people say you need to be tall - I'm 5'6" and can reach everything easily - guess they need to look harder for the holds.
