βeta: with good rope work it is safer to run pitch 3 an 4 together to save belaying on just pegs.

βeta: The belay on the 3rd pitch could really do with bolts. I am all for keeping routes true to the original assent style but I'm sure these pegs used to be in better condition. Probably worth replacing that peg on p2 aswell given it's the only thing preventing a fun swing...

βeta: The two peg belay at the end of pitch 3 is really not great. Would benefit massively from a bolt.

βeta: The 'pointless old peg' at the start of P1 referenced by South West Climbs is not pointless. If you fall off the start and your gear rips it will probably keep you off the ground (the ground below the belay ledge) and also stop your belayer being pulled off the ledge after them. Unfortunately our friend found this out the hard way after pulling off a head-sized hold. Very luckily, she managed to weather the 15m ground fall with only minor injuries. Clip the peg!

βeta: Could combine 3rd and 4th pitches if you manage the rope drag well
