Route Grade Votings

A fine line and stout at the grade, with good climbing when dry and a nightmare when damp, as it usually is. Climb the groove throughout (care with loose blocks) passing a tree then the crucial bulge (bristling with old rotten pegs) towards the top.
Needs a very long dry period. There is a lot of mud in the first 40 ft. Very worthwhile though
You can't see it from the ground due to tree cover, but the crux is quite a hefty roof. without the overhang it would be a dirty VS, but with it!
did this route today...it was thoroughly dry after all the hot weather, and spot on at a good HVS. there's no need to rely on the pegs, the lower one can be backed up, and there are good friend placements once you've made a move or two up. get on it now whilst it's dry!

There does appear to have been a recent rockfall just to the right ... it's unclear if it affects Babylon itself.
