Is it just me or should this route have a higher grade then just S 4a, i found it quite a struggle and i usually climb at VS 4c/5a. Or maybe i'm just bein lame.

Agreed - I've found it trickier than 4a every time I've done it.

Maybe 4b, but still only Severe.

Satisfyingly steep.

excellent route, though surely at least Hard Severe

Definitive S 4b: low crux with a sling next to your head.
