Route Grade Votings

The leaning crack with a kink early on, is gained from the left and sprinted on jams and jugs, passing a niche. Steep and pumpy, it is often dirty and can feel hard for the grade.
A horrendous route! Overgrown and dirty. I've led both Brimstone and Gates of Mordor, and found this one the hardest of the three! Deserves at least E1 for the sustained climbing in the first half of the route.
Hard(ish) climbing the moment leave the ground makes this feel very pumpy.
Not a horrendous route....but not HVS either!
