Route Grade Votings

Another fine climb at the bottom end of the grade, tracing a devious line on good rock with adequate rests. Protection is good, but spaced at times. Start 2m left of Ceramic and climb the wall, trending left into a shallow scoop (avoid a rightward line near Ceramic; this is E4 ). Continue up and left to finish up Meditation.
Found it quite bold and feel it just makes the old grade of E3.
Pretty run out for E2.
The move leftwards is marked by old tat (thread). Going direct up to the left arete of Ceramic then left is bold (hard E3)particularly if you don't spot the friend slot going left.
Tricky route finding, but great climbing. Climbed and cleaned up a little today. Probably low-end E3.
dusty and felt bold; the cam around the crux traverse didn't inspire and i hadn't clipped the thread. backed off. glad others found it interesting too:)
Felt bold enough seconding this. The gear placed on the traverse was poor and fell out before the leader got into the scoop. 5c move about 5m above your last worthwhile gear sounds like E3 to me.
Good to hear I'm not the only one who'd give this E3! I don't think I got the crux section right, as it seems to require a step right instead of direct. Absent Friends seemed easier to me
