Route Grade Votings

A long, classy route with an exciting finish through the roof.
Reach around to the right when on the jugs over the lip..theres a hidden jug that makes the top move much more do-able.
Lovely climbing finishes with desperate 6b pull to belay. Helen and I couldn't do it, even on top rope. Did Crocker reach through? If you're as useless as us you might want to take a sling to stand in to reach the belay.
A really nice route which you think you have onsighted, as you reach round the lip, and are greeted with huge jugs. However, you then have a ridiculous reach for poor holds to reach the belay!
Does anyone read my comments above?
Even with the right-hand jug, the moves to the belay are the hardest on the route. Huge span from the jug to a poor hold then a desperate pull on this. Despite most of the route being relatively easy, the top moves warrent 7a+ overall (plus a long reach symbol!).
Agree with the above. Used the hidden hold for the right hand, juggy horn for the left, heel on the big jugs over the lip, pull hard on the heel, get the hips up, lock right arm at chest level, full span extension and....
Yes but you have to pull very hard - in my opinion not 7a! More like 7a+/b but as a 'only couple of moves wonder' after a very good rest it is one of those 'Hard to Grade' routes... maybe it'll get the up-grade it deserves in a new guide!
