Route Grade Votings

The right-hand side of the slab is delicate to a finish at a perched block. Low in the grade though protection is poor on the lower crucial section, there have been a few nasty falls here.

Not especially low in the grade in my opinion.
Poorly protected. Not low in the grade IMO.
Beautiful slab moves though. Peanuts useful, but it is still poorly protected. Take a 1/2 size friend for after the crux
Scary and not at all low in the grade.
I wouldn't consider this low in the grade. There are several 5b moves and the gear is spaced. There are several moments when you could hit the ground if you fail. Having said that, the moves are excellent.
Poorly proected yes, but quite short, easy crux. Low in the grade I reckon.
Felt very bold the first time I lead it but have since solo'd it with great pleasure. A great route and a good appetiser to the other routes on the slab.
I soloed it and found it a very 'thoughtful' piece...especially when it was getting dark and you KNOW what Rivelin's like atop, I mean, you don't want to be topping off in the dark!
E1 4c/5a bottom
Would agree with the majority of comments. Good route, solid E1 5b.
Felt pretty low in the grade to me and I had no rope.
Pretty standard E1 5b but that didnt't stop it from scaring me. I wasn't having a a great day, (maybe I shouldn't complain seeing as I was trying to solo everything) and thought I had to do something of note. Felt very reachy getting to the top two breaks and I really would have liked to have stuck some cams in them! Great route, great solo experience.
My first E1 led, thought it was excellent, very bold for the first half then once u get the size 1/2 friend in the break you can really start to enjoy the climb, I thought the first move was the hardest. And its harder than it looks.
Agree with last comment, the first move is probably physically the hardest - not a good choice for first E1 though! I reckon if you're 6 foot or over, it might feel soft, otherwise its solid E1 5b. Should really get a reachy symbol, crux moves are very different for a shorty.
