Rockfax Description
The right-hand crack leads to ledges, then trend left on good holds to the summit. Avoid the arete for the grade otherwise it is more like VS 4c. © Rockfax

βeta: HVS 5b - This must be a misprint, HS 4a in BMC guide and I don't remember any problem when I soloed it.

βeta: Thought this was quite hard for HS 4a (as in BMC blue Froggatt guide). Maybe more like VS 4c?

βeta: Not more than 4c, although the reach to the mid height break seemed a long way for a shortarse like me. Worth a star purely for reaching such a great little summit
