βeta: I could be convinced that it's 5a, but gear's good enough that you would only take a small swing above an overhang is you screwed up the crux. Even solo it felt reasonably safe - a very nice few bridging moves.

βeta: Addendum to previous comment.(From Roberts Dad):- Rob went direct over the bulge (ratline) by mistake instead of up the groove!no wonder it was hard!

βeta: The crux move is desperate, definatly felt like 5a to me, and tough for vs as there isn't much gear.
