Yes it has! Took me a few days of effort, and many weeks of waiting when the crack turned into a waterfall after the Sydney floods of a few weeks back. It's all dry now. I've never really climbed anything like it before - so a rough guesstimate is grade 24. The first few moves are solid handjams, then a short bouldery section using holds on the outside of a wide slot, then shoulder thrutching/jamming/chimney/squirm/legbar for a few moves until a wide bridge appears. Then easier climbing up the steep offwidth to the rounded mantle top. My arms are now quite denuded of skin.
