Route Grade Votings

10m. Sprint up the flake then swing left and make a swift mantelshelf before climbing a precarious scoop to a desperately rounded exit. Large Friend protects the last move. Every move is supposed to be worth three stars!
fantastic route,every move 3 star
This is a very pleasant route But! It has never seen E4 or 3 stars. No way is it more than E2 5c, one tricky mantle next to loads of gear, come on be serious compare it to Hunky Dory or Ramshaw Crack!
E3 5c possibly a fair grade
E2 6a is a fairer grade for those used to smears, and thats without the huge cam for the exit
Very similar in style to Ascent of man, but easily a full grade easier in every sense!
Thought it was one of the best routes I have ever done, really loved it. Guess it's worth E3 if you have about a Camelot 5 for the top runnel, then that nasty rock over seems all too easy, But I didn't have one and was pretty excited when rocking on to the top slab. 3***
Brilliant route. Every move is certainly worth three stars and its also reasonably safe. Bit unsure of the grade especially if you use a camalot five like I did. It didn't feel too hard even as my first onsight "E4".
A great route but why on Earth hasn't the grade changed since the last guide? Severe climbing up the right-hand flake. A well protected 5b move to the right-hand flake. Extremely good runners protect the mantel (5c). A 5b move left to the runnel and a bomber Friend 5 for the finish (5b/c). A superb route, but this is no more than E2 5c!
I'm sorry I meant a 5b move to the left-hand flake!
