Defo not a 4+. Ended up grabbing runner on last bolt - felt mucho tricky!!!!! Agree, wee bit polished in places...

Great fun, I'm an HS/VS leader, it was 35 degrees, I was sweating and I didn't notice the polish at all - plenty of grip. Straightforward up to the move left and then a little bit exciting, but it's bolts: give it a go!
