Route Grade Votings
Total votes cast 15
A superbly exposed trip through unbelievable territory at the grade. The grade reflects the overall sustained nature of the route rather than the protection, which is more than adequate. There are a number of variations, including an extended start from over on the left and an independent finish, but none are as good as this particular combination.
Great route, the best way to climb Plumb Buttress.
Fantastic climbing, brilliant route. Intimidating for E1. 3rd pitch truely mega. 4th pitch worth 5b I reckon.
absolutely mind-bogglingly stupendous. If you're only going to climb one line on this cliff it's surely got to be this one - surplum may be more famous but the traverse on this line is just the dog's! don't hang around placing gear for too long... I also thought fourth pitch probably worth 5b, technically harder than P3 and still pretty exposed.
a truely superb expedition. 2nd pitch a little loose, but still great exposure which only increases with pitch 3 and 4. the belay on the pedestal after p3 is great. one of the most memorable routes in the peak.
Covers some impresive ground for the lowly grade. Pitch 2 was the hardest to lead, slightly off vertical grass and scree was a bit of a wake up call. Pitches 3 and 4 were a breeze in comparison as the rock was solid. One of the best adventures in the Peak.
