10m. Climb the thin cracks past the pod to a final groove.

me thinks its E1 5c if you stick to the cracks
HVS 5b? yet more proof that youbloodyrockfaxlot don't check your routes! get out of the odfice and onto the rock!
This route is my Nemesis. I regularly onsight E2 and can usually work 6b moves. However I've failed to get up this on three occaisions, and can't even nearly do it on toprope. I think the crack must be too thin for my fingers. At least E1
Not a chance it's less than E1 5c (as with Dan, I would normally walk this). Quite nice moves into the Pod, but getting out of it to the upper moves of the V beat me so thoroughly that I only just made the escape up the HS next door.
Protracted siege... disgraceful scenes... nearly threw up when I finally pulled over the top... definitive HVS. Classic!
A good route, although spoilt by the easy escape to the left. The only reason I voted it E1 5c was because there's no button for E2 6a.
Having just spent 6 weeks training to do Churnet valley font 7a/b pumpy traverses, now have no confidence!! Agree with all comments above. Definately E2 6a if you move direct from the pod. Going to retreat for next attempt when leading E5 to cruise it.
Frigged my way up this. I don't think there are any 6a moves on it but why can't the guide writers bite the bullet on this route? Extremely pumpy, very fingery and virtually noting for the feet. Top end E2 5c I feel.
Why would rockfax check the routes when we'll do it for them?
Why check it when it was put up by my old mate JR - though looks like he couldn't grade flour!!!
"Why check it when it was put up by my old mate" - a very traditional approach to guidebook writing!
Definitely E2 6a
