Was told it had no technical grade. Found out after it was 4a.

Mike Roach 23/Aug/09 Lead O/S

unprotected start. Needs good balance and footwork on gripy rock, as well as a steady head. In my opinion not the best climb to introduce those new to outdoor leading on due to the lack of early protection.

Didn't seem as unprotected as the description suggests. Certainly not HS 4a a la RockFax IMHO.
