Seconded Rob up. Nice route, slab at the top must have felt pretty bold for VDiff on the lead.

Very tricky first move to the cracks. I think this section is harder than VDiff and I doubt protection would stop you decking out to a very unpleasant landing. However, once you reach the cracks it is much easier. Would not be worth climbing again except for the beginning - perhaps as a boulder problem?
