Route Grade Votings

18m. A good route with a scary start though low in the grade. From a block (low Friend) climb the wall using tiny layaways to a good horizontal slot. Continue up a short vertical crack then a wider one, trending right to the top by excellent climbing.
superb, it's what grit is about, use your feet and your brain!
Brilliant route. One daunting move but after that it's thought-provoking, sustained but not hard (5a) and well-protected.
Scary! I didn't take enough gear, and had to really run out the top half of the route, which is supposed to be well-protected! :/
Surely this is only HVS or if it isn't then grades have got a darn site easier over time.
Relax on that first bit and it really isn't that hard technically, and as soon as you make yourself make the first moves, there's bomber gear.
worth E1 - nice 5bish moves to reach and then leave friend slot
Not impressed. I would have to leave it at E1, but with the note that it's a damned easy one. The crux is low enough not to get scared about the (even) lower gear, and then it's all over. Can't see why this gets 2*, the same as M Variant Direct - it could lose one easily.
Harder for the short, i seconded it and took a fall tryin to reach the brk. Found leaving the brk quite easy in comparisson, great route tho!
nice and easy problem
