6m. Enter the groove by frustrating moves and balance up it delicately. Pretty much all over after the first couple of moves, though oddly the starting moves would get 6a were they at the top!

if you enter the groove by fingery moves this is 6a - why not use the big holds?

Felt 5c and fingery to me... great route.

I think the start is desperate if you are a shorty (unlike me)

Great move to establish oneself on the slab - it's hard 5c even if you're tall. The groove isn't bad either. Good route.

Felt like a burly 5c slap / rockover, followed by a 5a groove to an easy, positive top - out. But that's at 6' 2" tall. Now if you're a short ar$e.....

Shame it's got chipped holds!!

The bum start is a cool problem, also the bum start going left under the roof finishing up the arete about font 7b+

I found this much easier as a dynamic problem. Am I the only one to find it tough (as in really tough) static?
