It's Supplementary Question with bolts, and a brilliant climb, good rock and good moves, though the top bit a little dirty. One of the better routes I've done at Horseshoe.

this is now a bolted route and felt easy - I think its on gary's site at 4+ which is about right. A little dirty, watch the rope drag
