Without the big foothold (and no holds on the face), quite a bit harder, maybe f6A+

As part of my trail of failure through the boulders of burbage valley. One of the few successes was a bit tricky to get off the ground but not to bad.

Did it initially using the hold in the middle of the left face, was then told it wasn't allowed, so did it again using the slot and arete only (which felt more like V4)
