Route Grade Votings

Climb the groove that bounds the right-hand side of the buttress and the crack on the right to a good ledge. Move up and left to the crest of a huge flake and step onto a polished lump, before climbing the wall rightwards to the final crack. Excellent stuff.
a great line that just keeps going. With a good exposed finish with good gear a great route for for people just starting to lead HS.
Don't agree with that. Its very high in the grade and probably deserves VS. If you did Cider Apple, the HS next to Apple Arete (although thats probably overgraded) and then tried this expecting similar difficulty, you'd be in for a big shock.
Good finish, shame about the ledge after the start, would be a excellent route without the ledge. Standard HS (with the middle bit being VD) maybe just worthy of 2 stars
A hard but well-protected crux. HS 4c?
