Route Grade Votings

The wide crack is an intimidating struggle for most. Big gear, big arms and a strong will to succeed will help get you up it. Hidden holds in the crack are a great help too.
A complete bitch. Butch and slippy.
An honorary gritstone route, probably as hard in many respects as Big Crack! The gear is excellent, but the route sustained.
Absolutely desperate! Love it or hate it.
A real struggle but strangely satisfying.
Description typo? "a strong will"
harder than it looks - really really hard, slippy and not much opportunity for rests
Sorry, it's a hard HVS, and no more than that. True, it's rather strenny, but the handholds are generous (esp if you can jam!) and it's well protected. Definite grade inflation going on here, i reckon.
loved it. pumpy as sin and a great contrasting E1 to dead banana crack
A largish block fell from 3/4 of the way up recently - just in case it feels a bit different if it's one of your 'regulars'. Doubt if any change in difficulty from looking at it.
