Probably should not comment on this as we only did the top 3.5 pitches. Pitch 4 is a beautiful corner which looks desperate from below but turns out to be very mild. Given 6b in local topos it probably is really 6a+ mostly for the steep start before swinging left. The final crack is nice too. The local topo grades it as, 6a,6c,6a+, 6b A0, 6a. I will not vote on this route but feel it should be 3 stars.
