Rockfax Description
Climb the crack (or the flaky wall to its left, which is more in keeping but a less logical line) and then enter the awkward continuation that splits the overhangs above with considerable difficulty. Long undergraded - maybe chockstones have gone or maybe the old guys were good at wriggling. We were going to give it E3 5c, but surely they weren't THAT good? © Rockfax

βeta: Indeed I did and again after. My old guide had no comments on the grade - so either I used to be better than I realised or chockstones have gone awol! Chris

βeta: A full on sandbag at VS! The crux needs a camalot 4 for pro or equivalent. The moves themselves v awkward and not 4C, nearer to 5A/B but sweet when cracked!
