Route Grade Votings
Total votes cast 21
Follow the balancy centre of the slab - unprotected and polished, to easy rock above. Finish right up the short bold arete.
A rarity at Birchen; a bit of a sandbag. Fall-offable at the start and at 3/4 height on the initial slab at the grade, with no protection till the difficulties are over. A thought provoking route, but if VD is the top of your game, good luck.
Got half way on this one and realised I was wasting my time carrying the gear up, but the time you can get some in, you dont need any! fun tho.
So if Trafalgar Wall is S4b (which is about right IMO) why is this VD!!!
I backed off this and downclimbed with one more move to the break, lookd like I was going to have ot smear and I didnt fancy it. Is it really vdiff? Have I really got that bad? :)
It's just getting off the ground (due to the polish) that's the problem. Easy after that. VD 4b ?
