Route Grade Votings
Total votes cast 23
A direct line parallel to Philatus, but on smaller holds. Staying directly on line maintains the grade. Starting slightly left and moving right in the middle section makes things easier (E2 5c) but still worthwhile.
Easier to protect than Philatus!
Easier than Stroof.
Overgraded and underated!
Now easier than Stroof. It looks like a small block has come out (about 2/3rds of the way up) resulting in a small hold now becoming considerably bigger. Now definitely easier than it was.
very nice technical route but disappointed that i couldn't honestly say it was an e3, or even 6a.
If you follow the original line it is definitely E3 6a. Unfortunately it is all to easy to skirt the bottom hard moves by starting slightly left and miss out the harder upper middle section by moving a little right for a move.
Suprised this has same grade as Philatus (worth E2 5B). PiM is technically harder (staying left above mid height), more sustained and less protected. Have not climbed recently - perhaps the (missing) small block is causing the grade dispute!
finally did this on Saturday, felt about e2 5c, but very eliminate to stay on the line, nice all the same though
each time i do this it leads me right towards second corner near the top. is that wrong? should i be ignoring the holds leading me right and instead go more direct through the undercut overlap to finish?
