Climb the sustained central crack in the back wall of the alcove. Well glossed and well protected - it eases with height.

More polish than the late pope, but some of the best gear you will ever place. If your marble hand jamming skills are lacking, get practising.
Probably worth vs 4c because its so slippy. Gotta love it.

I'd agree with 4c, even though I avoided using most of the crack and hence the polish!

Felt close to 4c to me as well. And I didn't notice any easing with height, it seemed to keep getting harder!

this was a bloody hard 'warm up' route for us - definitely 4c
