Difficult to grade. Without side runners its a V0/V1 highball solo, but you wouldn't want to fall off the crux, as you'd bounce down the route - ouch! With side runners it's still HS/VS (crux move above and to the side of the runners). Side runners not that easy to place.

After contemplating Croton Oil (Which I will do next time I promise!) I belayed Andy on this, looked absolutely nails after the first easy section. I've still not much idea how to do it, I went up and had a look without placing any runners, looks like a hard rockover with practically nothing for your hands to reach the top ledge. Judging by peoples comments here about the topout its probably a good thing I didn't make it though!

I didnt attempt this, but my friend did, slipped while topping out and fell. two bits of gear failed and he hit the bottom! he's okay now, somehow! but be careful at the top!!!!!

With a so-called side-runner in Jelly Baby. Not my idea of a side-runner, as it is easily placed without deviating from the route. Anyway, without it the route would be completely unprotected as gear low on the right is too low for the crux.
