Leant on ledge to the left so Andrew insisted on a restart. Placed gear to lower off and climbed ground up. Base was wet, polished and minging. Top was nice.

That felt like an excellent pitch of VS 4b to me! Damp and slippy in the bottom section. Avoided the ledge, if that wasn't there this would be 3* for sure.

My 7yr old daughter loved this! She laybacked the smooth starting crack as it has an internal 'lip' and she hasn't learnt to jam yet.

Jamming proficiency helps - it's solid foot jams and low-ish, solid hand jam before the good holds arrive, contrary to other comments about toe jams, fist jams and laybacks!! Probably stiff for severe, even by Yorkshire standards, due to polish...
