Route Grade Votings

24m. Follow Bachelor's Left-hand to the top of its crack then move left and teeter up the vague rib to good holds on Caricature. Climb the head-wall from right to to left (runner on the right) aiming for a final thin seam. Grade unconfirmed.
The teeter up the R arete of the gully is mega serious and precarious. Worth E6 for this alone. Don't know what the top wall is like but it looks harder than anything on Caricature, and is loads bolder. No way near E5!!
No way is this route E5. Its way more serious than Caricature and a fall would definitely hurt!! When linked to Caricature the initial arete would make a more logical and compelling line up the edge of this butress and would warrant hard E6 6b.
I have heard that the upper section is E7! Ask grimer for details.
the 2nd ascent was probably the F-A.
Who was that - Grimer?
The lower arete / Caricature linkup has now been led at E5/6 6b (tech. crux still that of Caricature). Starting from Rib Chimney, with a runner low down in that route.
good! Sounds like an epic of excellent climbing.
Lead the whole route yesterday. E7 6b.
good effort jon,1st ascent?
Who knows, Mark? Should be a bit easier for the lanky, so right up your alley Mark: reachy moves way above gear and a worrying ledge. Disengage imagination and go for it!
