Route Grade Votings

The elegant groove breaking out of The Directissima succumbs to sustained and powerful bridging in a wild position.
A fantastic route, but high in the grade.
An excellent route spoilt by the fact that the crux is clipping the bolts. Can we re bolt it?
i thought the clips made the route. having to get above the top bolt in the groove and clip it at your knees is the icing on a fairly tasty cake...
....or alternatively use slings stuck to the rock with strapell tape at the optimum clipping position
....or get a kneebar in the groove and clip fairly comfortably from the glued edge
The worst route I've been on at Kilnsey. Dirty - the bolts are two feet off route - loose rock and glued on holds. It should be re-bolted properely.
A superb route. Clipping all the spangly resin staple bolts is quite easy, you just have to do some thinking and some climbing! I don't recall finding any loose rock anywhere.
Great route. Clip the bolts once they're at groin height, no problemos. Quite short and low in the grade for lanky folk. Much easier than The Ashes!
