Route Grade Votings
Total votes cast 14
From the gully climb the shallow groove (poor gear) to a steep but juggy exit via the horizontal breaks.
This route seemed very bold for a Hard Severe. No gear for the first 15 feet below the ledge (unless you've got a small cam, in which case maybe.....). Moves were straightforward on this section, but felt harder due to lack of pro. Doesn't quite warrant VS, but there are much friendlier HS's out there......
(I think the grades of this climb & Rigor Mortis to the left may be swapped over by mistake in the guide book?) I got a green alien in a pocket below the ledge but it's a poor placement - first 15 feet are effectively unprotected.
Gets VS in the Stanage guide and probably justifiably so.
THe first half is unprotected, delicate & definitely worth VS, the top is pure fun
