Very steady. BMC guide lists it as HS, but it's definitely a Severe.

Sustained stuff...Achieve the roof and lean back, smear and underhand traverse to the right edge. Large cam placement then move onto arete. Lay back and smear feet up to reach better holds. Excellent stuff.

Didn't rate it, not convinced it's worth a star but it was last route of the day and the midges were out so maybe that's coloured my judgement. Quite awkward at the beginning because of the polish. Ended up hanging around on a layback trying to get a cam out of the roofcrack...then ended up with a jam in the roofcrack to get it out then moved out to the bit of a hold before pulling up to the arete. Pretty much all over after that.
