Start at a pointed spike below the bulges, pull through the overhang (4c for the strong-of-arm?) and climb the slab above.

This is not a VS. It is also not 5a. IT is more like HS 4b. A load of my friends climb it, all found it easy. So i soloed it and it was a lot easer then Barbette Crack, whitch only gets HS 4b. So i think that it needs to come down in the grades a long way. Beside the odd grade it is a very good climb, fun and enjoyable.

Agree with previous comment, this is much easier than other VS's on the crag. More like Severe 4b/c. Nice route all the same.

The move felt like 5a to me and I wouldn't disagree with VS either as it is similar to other VSs at this crag.

Very similar to the other VS 5a routes at the crag, one tricky move then you're away!

Definitely not VS or 5a. Continue up the back wall for an extra couple of metres.

One of the more "route-y" climbs in the area, but how on earth do you get 4b out of the first rockover from the ground? No. Easy VS, 4c/5a, and quite nice.

I'd say 5a is fair, or V0 as a problem. The rest's a path, so S 5a might be about right?
