4th ascent of Liquid Ambar 8c(+?)

UK Climbing reports Pete Robins has made the 4th ascent (Moffat, Moon, Simpson, Robins) of Jerry Moffat's Liquid ambar at Lower Pen Trwyn, North Wales. The FA was made back in 1990.
Pete solved the single moves pretty swiftly, yet needed 20 days for the send. The route is graded 8c, although some would probably call it 8c+. Full story.
I used to believe the name was Liquid amber i.e beer, but after reading Revelations, it turns out it's a tree. Actually it should be Liquidambar, so perhaps the beer-theory wasn't too far off after all...
