Route Grade Votings

Excellent, the best of its grade here, following the sinuous crack-line that runs the full height of the face. A steep and technical start leads to easier sustained climbing (threads) and on up pleasantly sustained rock above.
Steady, safe, and amenable.
A very good line, worth all 3 of it's stars.
Thoroughly enjoyable route
The new guide gives this HVS 5a, though it is an easy (and brilliant) HVS I still think the start is 5b.
Great route, crux at the start, so you can enjoy the rest of route in comfort
Great route. Great pro. Great location!
A nice technical start then eases into a long enjoyable climb with some big pockets and high footwork.
Excellent solid climbing all the way.
What a great route! I fell off near the start - used the wrong foothold which was a little polished and reached up too far for a pocket so my foot slipped, but when I found a more useful foothold it was all go from there. I still feel like I led a whole route, as it's so long! The first half is great, and right on the edge of my ability - I was trying to use my feet as well as I could to take the weight off my arms and stop me getting too pumped, but it took all I had to keep going until the rest on the ledge, the holds got bigger and bigger approaching it but I was less and less able to use them! I had to wait for ages to get back my feeling then my strength (all my fingers tendond still feel tweaked) before I carried on. There's an easy section with cool rock, then some more thoughtful bits as Souljah said (although I didn't do any of the high footwork mentioned, quite unlike me in fact). The gear is perfect too, in fact I have no reason to fault this route at all!
