Walker, canoeist, sailer, glider pilot, rock climber and father of 3.

Middle son of a polar explorer, and grew up in the wilds of Orkney and the Falklands - so take after my father in outdoors pursuits.

Happy in the middle of mountains or forests in a tent :-)

comment Technique for lead solo climbing with rope
I think I agree that this is not a beginner's option. I wouldn't like to try it and I've been climbing for years, however it is a valid question - we can always make sure there is a warning on any answer, saying Advanced Climbers Only

comment Seeking photographs of “climber's hunch”
The question over on fitness.stackexchange.com/questions/12324 has a lot of info on this. Asking for photos here is off topic.

I should have done this yesterday, sorry: Liam is right - if the question was about how to rate a climb, it would be very welcome, but this one is about one particular climb and while shimizu's answer is good, it will only be useful to people who visit you.

Without actually trying it, it's not going to be easy to guess. There are so many other variables that could affect a rating.
