Route Grade Votings

Excellent stuff. Starting from left or right, climb the parallel cracks until they become one, then take the continuation to the top. A well protected and a popular climb for pushing the grade and honing the jamming.

For me, the most overgraded grit VS on Eastern Grit.
Bit of a mystery this one. Prior to the publication of Peak Gritstone East there seemed to be a strong argument for downgrading this route to HS...and yet it has gone into the guide well up the VS graded list. Weird.
A lovely route, deserving its 3-stars, but yes, probably HS rather than VS.
Very soft for a VS and gets easier as you gain height so 3 stars is generous.
Definitely HS. 4b moves, numerous good rests and you can place your whole rack if you want. Nevertheless, a brilliant route on big jugs all the way. Worth the three stars.
Like an idiot I climbed the route without carefully reading the guidebook and I assumed the right hand crack was out of bounds. It felt right for the guidebook grade.
Watch out at the top for some VERY dodgy wire placements for anchors. Theres a crack that looks like its been used for lots of 'em where half of it wobbles by about 2-3"! More secure stuff is further back. Over graded, over starred, but still nice, if not quite paradise.
Think its worth the 3 stars but dont know about the 4c poss 4b.
probably about the right grade, just low for it. defo 3 stars though, was easy but execellent fun
not that hard but so what, its fun
A good route. Don't think HS would include a crux on a near vertical crack. The big jutting out handhold/foothold at the base of the crack is also a bit wobbly. It is a soft touch at VS 4c, but I think it deserves this grade; personally thought the initial section and crux was harder/less easy than anything on, say for example, Mississippi Butress Direct and Heather Wall. Good route for your first VS lead methinks.
Would make an excellent first VS. Easy to place protection all the way. Low in the grade but steep enough to warrant it. Well worth doing.
do this route if you are just starting on vs or it's a sunny sunday and you just want to cruise up and use ever bit of gear you own soft at vs but 3 star all the way
Beautiful! (but 4c is a bit OTT)
It was one of my first VSs - but I'm not going to argue with HS. Absolutely 3* though
A perfect HS 4b.
First climb on grit for a long time. Nice little route - HS 4B is spot on.
