βeta: Possibly an issue with the miniguide topo here which (I thought) directs you up the groove to the right above the ledges. In that case it's VC 4c with loose rock at the top

andyjirvin 29 Jul, 2012 Lead O/S Interetsing route, a bit disjointed. Start up to ledge is pretty easy but feels a little bold. Obvious belay so we broke it in 2 ptiches. Imagine there would have been a lot of rope drag otherwise. 2nd pitch much nicer, interesting rock and good layback, bridging and a few undercuts thrown in, nicely technical and 3d. Gear is there but some is a bit fiddly and some pieces just ok. Best to sprint to the top!
