14m. Worthwhile. Start just right of a low overhang (4b?) and climb the crack and groove to a steep and well protected finish up a thin crack.

seems a bit stiff at S 4a; more like HS 4b as per OPR. nice finish though.

Felt like S 4a, but I am tall, so not sure how this affects the route.
Quality outing on good, mainly posative holds.

I'm short, and I thought S, 4a reasonable.

Felt like S4b to me, even allowing for the dog's breakfast I made of the start.

I vote 4b, but Severe is ok. The first moves are hard but safe, the top move is well protectable.

I'd take this as almost definitive S 4a. Nice line and some good moves.
