Route Grade Votings

1) 5b, 14m. Climb the wall on crisp crimps (spaced gear) to the base of an elegant groove. Bridge up this to a good stance. 2) 5b, 14m. The solid jamming crack leads all too soon (unless pumped senseless - 5c) to easy ground. Exit boldly left up the wall or escape out right to easy ground.
first pitch is delicate,the second pitch is desperate for e1
Excellent climbing, but that jamming crack is waay-pumpy towards the top!
5c?! hmmm... the jamming is easier than, say, matinee: a tad steep but with solid jams. pretty standard E1.
the jamming crack is easy at speed (ie solo)i have done harder 4c's in the peak, a nice varied route
Does what it says on the tin. First pitch is very nice, second pitch contains the full weight of the grade although like most such climbs it's not too bad if you give it the crucial "umph". The wall finish looked good and would add more quality.
Brilliant varied climb spoilt only slightly by being easily escapable at the mid height ledge.
