nice climb - good gear where it matters. Never VS 4b. this grade reflects either pumpy sustained climbing or run out. Neither of which apply. Didn't find anything on the start harder than S/HS 4a/4b border so maybe a flake has grown ;)

due to a snapped missing hold at the foot of the climb reckon the start of this warrants 4c. Cracking end to the route on the final wall

chris smith 24/Feb/14 Lead O/S

NOt sure if some holds have fallen off the bottom of this climb but its start is nails for a 4c
