Route Grade Votings

8m. The short roof crack is a real gritstoner's glory where subtlety is definitely not required - brute force rules OK!
This is really rather hard for 5b! Also, the comment re. tape is misguided: the inside surfaces of the crack are quite pebbly and had a liberal coating of someone else's blood when I got to them (with my sensibly taped hands).
No way is this E2 5b. More like Hard E3 5c.
I'd agree with E2, but not 5b. Not quite the horrific thrutch it looks like, and can actually be climbed rather elegantly, if your gear doesn't get in the way.
I got spat out of the crack several times before lowering to the ground. It felt harder than the old grade of 5b. The gear's bomber and above your head so E2 5c seems right to me.
