Route Grade Votings
Total votes cast 4
An outstanding route marking a step forward in trad limestone climbing. A serious start and long moves between distant gear put this at the upper limit of the grade. Start below the rather high first bolt. Good luck. The route had a controversial history but hopefully now it will remain in its 2 pegs, 2 bolts state. To do a 7c sport route, pre-clip the first bolt above the initial run-out then those climbers who want to attempt a classic E6 still can. The start is harder than it used to be because holds have gone.
Middle 7c when bolted and v good!

Presumably more holds have come off this as it is now at least F7c+ and maybe even F8a? Apparently there were wires before the first bolt when Ron did it. It's now about F7a+ to get to the first bolt. You would need a very long clip stick to pre-clip that first bolt!
