Route Grade Votings

18m. Well-protected climbing on pleasing holds, and understandably popular. Climb the crack first, passing an overlap early on, to a finish up the final groove (a bit loose) at the left edge of the roof. Low in the grade.
Much easier than it looks, I assume the E2 grade was a joke? A good route, well protected and mostly on very pleasing holds - the rock is hardly an issue.
I agree...the climbing is technical, but on great holds with great gear. A joke, biut a pleasant one nonetheless!
Not E2 but a superb route, well worth doing, soft touch E1 5A?
Nice climbing, but surely a soft touch E1 5b?
Yes, E1 5B my mistake!
OI! My first E2 lead and we'll keep it at E2 thank you very much! It's nicely sandwhiched by my first E1 lead (Many happy returns) and my first HVS lead Terror Cotta
Large hold to the left of the peg is now very loose and requires care. I suspect that when it comes off the route will be a bit harder.
I don't like loose holds so did the route without using the big rattly one - don't think it really increased the grade.
Not an E2, but nice idea for a tick list i guess!
I would like to claim E2 because that would mean I lead my first HVS, E1 and E2 in a day but it definitely didn't feel it. Superb route though.
Felt very E1 to me! The peg makes the difference, because the moves are certainly 5b. Very good route to cut your teeth on around either grade
Lots of incut holds - almost like a climbing wall! A softer option than trying to do the start of Zarke.
This one's always clean becuase of the protective capping roof. E1 5b and one of the best routes here.
Not such a soft touch E1 now as the peg has gone and there is a big loose hold at the crux. But it's still a lot easier than Zarke!
