This route is VS 4b in OPR, which I thought was about right, it is loads easier than the other HVS 5b's here

I think 4b is a harsh, Id have said more like VS 5a - coupel of well-protected tricky moves up the groove surrounded by vdiff climbing. Never HVS though, agreed.

I'd be inclined to split the difference at VS 4c. Although easy in the grade
Frank Wigley - 15/Mar/07

I agree with VS 4c, and a bit of a one-move wonder at that. It's well protected with gear above your head until going for the groove, then it's all over.
