Route Grade Votings

Start on the left wall of the cleft, at some polished footholds. Make delicate moves to better holds, swing left along the break to pass the arete, and climb the wide crack on the left.
A satisfying combination of varied climbing techniques.
Just finished seconding this route in the dark tonight. It is given HVS 5b in the new BMC Stanage guide. Believe me, it definitely felt like that to me! Good route though, but would recommend you do it in daylight! Without a helpful team of spotters to point the footholds out by torchlight, I'd have been screwed!
Definately a VS 5b in the daylight.
Direct start goes at about V6.
