The grade depends on where you climb - left of the bolts is 5, the layback seam is 4.

Not unforgettable, but definitely worthwhile.

Couldn't quite work out the line/s on this. I broke left and layback on the distinct edge, stepping up and then gaining a little height to clip the belay, which I guessed was the 5. The 4 however didn't seem that obvious as going right from the break seemed much harder unless you were a good 2m or so from the bolt line. Admittedly this right hand route was about a 4, but I was sufficiently far from the bolts that each clip required a traverse. I wouldn't like to have taken a fall off the 4 given the potential to pendulum across the face the of the slab.
