Def only 5a - not hard, very good short route but think it's an easy HVS - the rounded top out is still a bit tricky and you're definitely decking out from there if you fluff it.

Top move is very sketchy when wet, and the gear's too low to save you.

Top seemed a balancy and it's not as if gear would do you any good... Good as a solo though.
