Route Grade Votings

A fine sustained route that begins just left of the huge groove.
I'd always steered clear of this route in the past as the name put me off! But do it, it's really good at the grade, with decent gear (could even be HVS) but watch for rope drag on 2nd pitch.
Had an epic on P2 after Mark led P1 to the rightly described scary stance. After traversing left (bit scary) it was all loose rotten rock where I had to pull up and spent ages either accidentally or intentionally chucking lumps off before I eventually moved up and right. The route I then took seemed much more direct than that described in the guide. So tired by then though that I lobbed off on last steep move onto two solid cams. Loose at top as well, though not unusual for the Ruckle.
