Route Grade Votings

The most popular on the face. The climbing is never very hard but the situation is intimidating. It can be climbed in one pitch.</br>1) 5b, 25m. Climb the flake and step right in the open groove (as for Monster Mash). From the top of this pull out rightwards and climb the wall above to the small ledge belay.</br>2) 5c, 25m. Follow a diagonal line of cracks up and leftwards past a large thread. Easier ground leads to the grass ledges and the stake belays at the top.
Second pitch is hard. CC guide has this at E3 which I wouldn't have argued with...
Do it in a single pitch (50m ropes just make it to the stakes) - an excellent sustained expedition that makes a full value E2.
Did this with in a single pitch with the incoming tide lapping at mt belayer's feet. One of the best routes I've done, left me buzzing for days!
I thought this was low in the grade, and something of anticlimax after what I'd been told. Worth using the belay ledge to avoid rope drag on the crux (and the tide). Also, take a knife and cut down the mouldy tat, which is an unnecessary blemish.
I was also a little underwhelmed by this route
