Route Grade Votings

A delightful route, friendly, well-bolted and sustained, but never desperate. It is also sheltered from the wind.

Good fun - well bolted & friendly
A great warm-up for other routes. I will definitely do this route again during my next visit.
First 6a onsight for my 12 year old son this weekend. This route is perfect for that. While the first bolt is high it is easy to spot.
just got back from sports climbing in new Zealand and a route like this reminds me how good Portland is.
Is that a positive or negative comment John?
fab route - thought it was a bit hard at the grade
hate this route!!!! far too much polish. can i go and throw a large tube of acid at it to get rid of polish please.
Yes, as long as i'm allowed to tip the remainder in your eyes. thought it was a great route. anything half decent is going to be a bit polished, get over it! idiot
a tad more than a bit polished!!!!! every hold was like gripping onto glass. loser!!
oh come on. every hold is not like gripping onto glass. it's a technical route and only a little polished for feet in places.
Given that this route is one of only a couple of warm up routes at Battleship it is bound to get a bit polished, but I agree with Wilbur it is not that bad and it is still F6a.
was it me or have all the bolts been removed from this route -I could not see any on it yesterday!
Ian - i think the line in the rockfax might be a bit out from memory? NDACWYD is the line right in the gully/lowest point, and the first bolt is pretty high..
Line was there a couple of weeks ago, brilliant route hardly any polish compared to some easier routes - at the cuttings for example. very recomended!
did the route yesterday and thought it was sustained and excellent - a little run out at the top. The picture in the guide book is printed with this route and the next 4 displaced to the left -why is the obvious central groove line not stapled - surely a bolted area is a bolted area !
The line in the guidebook is wrong (too far to the left)
A lovely route. Plenty of options for non-polished holds. Hard 6a.
Good route. Yes, i was confused too - The line in the guidebook is wrong (too far to the left). The actual route is marked as a 6c in the guide!
great route on positive holds the whole way, good warm up
Lovely route. Description and grade spot on.
