Rockfax Description
12m. Pull though the bulge and climb the crack to its end then move right to a ledge. Climb up right to the capping bulge (bold and delicate) and cross the left-hand side of this to finish. © Rockfax

Not sure why the guide mentions the thread runner at the top - by the time you reach that all the hard climbing is over. The poorly protected wall/slab would be scary on lead, and a bit desperate for the short. S 4b for the hard start, HS 4a for the finish, so HS 4b overall as per the BMC guid, though verging on VS 4b for the short.

with my limited experience this felt on a par with other HS that I've done this trip, say's it in the book too. Last climb of my first grit trip and a pleasant finish to the trip. fluttery moment working out the direction of the run out bit, Cams would have made this easier but not necessary to protect it.
