Route Grade Votings

The kinked crack is a bit of a bollard. The star is awarded for people who prefer their climbing to have some character.
Struggled on this last summer. Cruised the route through to the last 5 feet. Not being a master of jamming at the time (in fact ever) had to link the last few overhanging moves together properly. Can't remember which way round did the trick, but had to face left or right, to get crucial extra inches on the reach for a good hold at the top.
The VS grade doesn't get much more solid than this. A bit of an off-width special (Although hand jamming is possible in a seconday crack deep within the main crack, I didn't bother trying. My Mate who seconded did!) and one for leg/foot pain as you jam it in. Very 'traditional' in nature. The trick at the top overhang is to just figure out your own plan of attack and go for it!
