Route Grade Votings

A proper full-on jamming pitch. The central section is tough, although bridging helps, and the pull on to the ledge is tricky. Up the corner on the right and then traverse awkwardly right to a ledge above Tower Face.
Good route for who is keen for a fight. Very sustained especially if you take some time figuring the moves. The top bit is quite impressive but not hard. Well worth 2 stars.
What a bitch of a route! Awkward bridging as it forces you to really spread 'em, difficult to jam & not obvious what technique to muse on the main crack. Tried jamming, bridging & laybacking - mostly in vain. Definitely the toughest 5a I've done & think technically it should be 5b, certainly if compared to Goliath Groove.
Straight forward for the grade if you like jamming and are good at it, (rather than claiming to be)... If you don`t or you arn`t (despite claiming to be), then don`t go near it!
Respect to Mr Brown - another awesome route from the 1950s. Had a bit of a fight with it and it felt more like 5b to me and my jamming isn't normally that bad. A good old fashioned route to sort the men from the boys. Worth doing (once!).
