I'm not at all sure about grading at this level but I thought this was hard. It's short of course, but it's both steep and fingery.

A nice climb. I found it to be notably more difficult than all the other 3/3+ routes I've climbed on Portland.

Nice little route and very satisfying. Probably graded 3 due to its length but feels more like a 4 since it is pretty fingery and steep

Strange, strange climb. A 3 once you know exactly where all the holds are, but if you're onsighting the mottled rock and steepness means the massive hand holds and footholds are not at all obvious. Much more like a 4.
