More like 5 or 5+ than 4 per my guide book.

Polished and scary to clip if you're short.

Very polished at the bottom which makes the start tricky (more 5 than 4!) Easier climbing after the ledge.

Lots of seepage on the first part meaning I couldn't even get to the first bolt. Will try again when dry.

contender for the most polished route I have ever done as a result its 5+ next year it might well be 6a....

Pretty sure some holds have come off this. It gets F4 in the Rockfax guide.

Bottom section way WAY harder than the grade 4 it's given in the guidebook. F5+ would probably be fair.
