Route Grade Votings
Total votes cast 21
Start just left of the arete and follow the crack to the top. Variation, E1 5b - traverse right from high on the route to reach another crack.
Quite strenous, felt hard for the grade
Harder than Army Dreamers!
Hard for the grade, need lots of 'big crack' gear
Definately hard for the grade and not in line with the areas grading. The crux is far harder than anything on Army Dreamers or Front Line. Its quite a good route however, climbs a crack line at a strange leaning angle that makes it harder.
Hard for VS, though I disagree that Front Line is easier; I did both of these climbs in the same week. With good footwork you can make the crux less of a struggle!
I've seen loads of failed attempts and falls on this over the years. Worthy of VS 5a.
My 4th route climbed in Pembroke. I second opinions it's hard for the grade.
