Route Grade Votings
Total votes cast 68
Climb the slab left of the shallow groove then step left and make a fierce, fingery mantelshelf to better holds and an uphill finger-traverse to ledges. One more scary move remains. A super-technical left-hand start is around f7A+.
Downhill Racer is a great route! The top move is escapeable - nevermind. Still (***)!!
Frightened myself senseless - never again. Superb route though
How do most people finish this route? Do you traverse into LJ's at the top or do you do the direct finish as described in the old Froggatt guide?
Easy E4, one trickyish move at 15ft, and then a path to the top.
'E'and tech grade are spot on. Just done it again after 20 years, and its still a fantastic route.
Dont forget ... Dawes did this one handed
and in trainers!
Quality, pretty on/off move low down and then not too much trouble above that. Just keep your head in gear, thnk it's worth E5 though - Similar to Artless and Heartless.
