Rockfax Description
A great pitch, long interesting and very photogenic - the walk is worth it just to do this route. From the cave, pull onto the face (massive thread) then climb the centre of the face trending slightly left until it is possible to step back right to the well-positioned final crack.. © Rockfax

βeta: The finest gritstone VS I've found. I agree with your description about the first move being 5a and much harder than the rest - is that why you gave it 4c?
