Route Grade Votings

A bruising battle for most. From a big thread, hand traverse the greasy flange and finger-jam the roof-crack. Once established on the front face things ease instantly. A VS from when grades were random, and upgraded (yet again) by popular demand!
Why isn't Cave Crawl in the guide? It is truely unique amongst all the routes of the peak in making you think you'll die by getting stuck and never getting out again. This, added to the rabbit from a hole experience of popping out of the top of the innards of Swimmers Chimney makes it well worth doing!
Felt more like E3/4, but I guess I am just not hard enough!!!
Positively brutal, but a bomber friend in the crack makes it confidentally safe.
Friend 5 useful as is creative thinking.
mate - hands off rest left foot on slab, back of head smearing on the gritstone behind... and no jams necessary for sure!
Comparatively easier than tower chimney at stanage.
Good solid E2. Don't kind yourselves ladies.
