Route Grade Votings

10m. The centre of the fluted face is sustained, with tricky moves to the break. Finish steeply on huge holds. Low in the grade.
Lovely climb. I'd probably agree with HVS although it is probably in line with most of the other Northumberland VS's I have done.
Worth HVS for the onsight. Very easy to pump out placing the gear.
Might be hard for VS, but still VS. great though.
VS 4c but sustained at that level.
Agreed. "just" a sustained VS.
don't mind this being graded HVS 5a, but when you get on some other HVS 5a's which provide much less protection with tricky moves, it can be dangerously misleading to grade this an HVS 5a as well.
Giving this the same grade as Devil's Edge (Quarry), makes the HVS grade bracket so wide it's almost meaningless! A gift at this grade relative to other routes/crags in the area...
