Route Grade Votings

22m. An intimidating layback up the imposing straight crack, fortunately it is easier than it looks. Threaded chockstones or large Friend runners protect. Those heading Stateside might want to ‘off-width' it just for the practice - a different ball-game!
Very committing layback with feet on slippy green stuff. Only for a very positive day out!!
Could this be the most hideous route at millstone? Committed layback with feet on pure slime protected by a slung chockstone (or 5 friend). Darstadly
Committing as a layback but perfectly secure and fine at the grade when dry. Offwidthing the bottom section is also OK if you have the skills. The top section just demands a layback. Probably HVS now without a Friend 5 as the bottom chockstone moves but should be graded VS 4c with a gear warning.
Maybe four feet below the top there is a short section where the laybacking is less positive. I fell from here so am biased, but other climbers helping me after were either being very nice or agreed with me that it is HVS and committing.
HVS 4c without a monster cam - the middle layback goes on a bit!
