Route Grade Votings

A slippery classic. Start below the steep arete and climb up and right to a good ledge. Use the deep horizontal crack to aid a shuffling traverse out to the left to gain the final easier slab.
'Roger the cabin Boy' is a worthwhile variation that should be mentioned. Ulikely as it looks, it goes up the steep groove a few moves before the traverse left and is only about a grade harder.
If the final slab above the traverse was more challenging it would be worth 3 stars.
I think if you were pushing your grade on this route it would be amazing. If it is well within your ability it is good but a bit of a one move wonder.
nice! the traverse is a bit scary, but really well protected. Seems harder than topsail, but still only HS
It looks like a VS, but all the protection is there so don't be put off.
Really good route, but the upper slab is disappointingly easy.
A cracker, the traverse had me a little anxious!
First HS. The traverse is longer than it seems from below, though well protected and on good jams. Felt fair for the grade.
