Route Grade Votings

One of the most technical face-moves in the area, best accomplished on an ice-cold day.
Straight forward crimping. Crux for the short is the lower bulge before the upper slab. There's plenty more technical routes about!
Having done virtually everything on Portland I can assure the user there are no flat wall moves more technical than these on Portland. Balance of Power is about the same level though.
after doing the rout i was a little dissapointed, the crux is hard indeaad dont get me wrong some of the hardest moves ive ever done just the rest of the rout lets it down, sorry
Had a play on this ... absolutely nails. Harder crux move than Breathing method ... not as sustained, defo hard 7c+ maybe 8a.
Basically a 6 move V9 boulder problem on a rope. Dont even bother trying it unless its freezing.
tried this on Saturday, desparate! Waited for the temp to drop a few degrees in the afternoon and it felt quite reasonable. Very temp dependant but didn't think it was too technical - fairly strightforward once it's cold enough; low/mid grade 7c+
Some good moves and not holds not that bad
