Definitely VS. The crux is really the same as The End, so not sure why this is 4c and the end 5a.?! VS 4c fair but 5a believable. HS 4b it's not!

Backed off at the second pitch (there is a decent descent from there). I got heat exhaustion / sun strike (in Scotland, in April!?) and decided that not throwing up on Keith while he's belaying is more important than finishing the pitch.
