6m. The pocketed left-hand edge of the right-hand slab is a grade harder for the technically inept.

Overgraded at E2 5c so if your pushing E2 get the tick when you can.

bit harder than kayak - E2 5c would seem fair

Probably overgraded at E3 6a - more like E2 5c/6a. Shame really, because it is my only E3 lead (solo) to date...

I thought more like E1/2 6a. Never E3.

i found it more committing than finger distance, and had to back off!!

Mild E3 5c. The moves are quite straightforward but committing, above an unpleasant fall without mats. More dangerous than, say, Parallel Piped, Waterloo Sunset, etc etc, and comparable to perhaps a slightly trickier Ashes. Regardless an enjoyable and tempting problem and definitely worth a star.

Definately star worthy. Excellent climbing, balancy but obvious moves up the pockets. Final break testing but will take a micro cam making it safe as 'ouses! E1 5c I reckon!
