Joes first lead in a while, a bit awkward in places with some fun holds, did good job and all gear placements were good. Would describe as S rather than VD, a good one to get back into outdoor climbing again.

Feels more like the S 4a grade it's given in Eastern Grit. Starting the boulder direct adds a bit...
