Route Grade Votings

Another fine route, tracing the easiest line up the shield. Immaculate rock, good protection, a hands-off rest and some brilliant technical sequences. Start lower than Original Route as for Supersonic (this helps keep the wires on the crux in). Move up left and follow the crack as for Tales until the curving overlap on the right can be gained. Pull out right from this to a rest then climb direct up a peg-scarred crack (polished) to a good hold. Wander more easily rightwards up the dinner-plate flake and finish direct from its end.
The peg -scarred crack is getting rather polished.
Get the second man to stand below the crux wall (rather than by the tree) helps to keep the crucial runners in.
Not really E4, come on soft for the grade.
quality E4. great climb with testing moves all the way. beware the tricky move after the rest.
