Route Grade Votings

Airy climbing and an eye-catching line that takes on the leaning 'feathered' arete to the left of Raven Gully. Start in an overhung corner directly under the arete.</br>Pull up steeply into the corner using a hollow flake. Make a spectacular move left around the leaning arete, past a spike-runner, to easier-angled ground on the face. Pleasant climbing up the wall and breaks just left of the arete gains a large ledge. Move left from here and climb the slabby wall to the top. Not in current guidebook.
my first VS, quite easy at the grade I thought, not sure why it's not a HS really.
How can you comment on the grade when its the only one you've done!!!
Maybe (and this is just a crazy theory), he's climbed other routes at a lower grade, and this didn't seem any/much harder than them?
LOL I did this climb about 5 years ago !!!
You're right, it is a one mover. I always find it very scary on a lead, but I have never tried placing a sling. When going around the arete make sure you commit and make a good reach leftwards to find a good hold which will help lots!
Nice climb with a great move onto the arret. Good slab climbing above but with modern gear easily protected.
