Route Grade Votings

16m. An ancient technical test-piece. Pull on to the slab using a rounded pocket then head right under the overlap to where delicate moves gain a flat ledge. Finish up the polished corner.
A popular alternative start is 1m right. Better holds for a good layback, but still a 4c move or two.
agree with nick, the layback start is pretty tough, but only the bottom few moves are hard, after that its plain sailing. nice route
Nice route, but probably not a good one to break yourself back into Gritstone climbing on; say, for example, after a 5 month absence from climbing of any kind. The start is definitely the hardest part of the route.
Really good value for money HS 4c. Keeps the interest going all the way. Both the bottom and the top are more challenging for the short but the start to the left of the pocket is a wicked technical sequence - definitely worth a go (with good spotters!)
Nice route, and I agree with this grade (HS 4c). Led a total beginner up it thinking "HS 4b? He'll get up it in the end." Poor choice for an introductory route.
layback start? delicate padding up the rib and then mantle of a stonking hand jam.
Start is tough, hand jamming it doesn't feel secure. Mantled up using the obvious pocket, helped being tall. Rest of the route is a breeze, and fun with it.
Bit of a tricky start (fell on my back after a slip low down!) that leads into a really lovely route with solid gear. A lot of fun!
