Route Grade Votings

16m. Climb the horizontally-cracked slab up its centre. The well protected crux move is at the steepening.
A really nice route. A slightly milder version of High Neb Buttress, perhaps harder technically at the crux but better pro. A tad artificial if you are strict with yourself and avoid use of the aretes.
enjoyed the route. the crux is safe and satisfying to complete. i can see how ya might think avoiding the arete is artificial but you don't need 'em
I really enjoyed this and found nothing artificial in avoiding the arete. Just go up the middle of the slab. Crux for me was the first mantleshelf. Overgraded.
Quite a pleasing route, flows well. Just the right amount of pro, and in just the right places (I have a tendency to place gear wherever it's available, routes like this are good where there aren't unecessary placements so you can concentrate on the moves instead). Definately best without the aretes, and it's not too hard to avoid them.
Nice route, easy to avoid routes on either side, though over graded at 5a I'd say 4b at the most if you've got the bottle to climb above your gear on the slab.
Enjoyed this. Couple of good matleshelves and some fun 'trust your feet' moves on the slabs above good gear. felt a bit easier than 5a
