Route Grade Votings

The chimney in the left side of the bay can be climbed inside or outside of the chockstones. The subterranean route is more secure, and tight, the outer one is precarious and probably S 4b.
A glorious outing if you wind your way through the chockstones. Had me in stitches most of the way up.
The outside route is pretty soft at S and has never been VS!
Awesome fun. A classic of its type. Three stars if you like that sort of thing. None if you don't.
This is a great route but a joke at Severe, its about as hard as the Diff to the right of it. The 'VS' variation might just be worth S but you can sling the whole chockstone to give yourself a toprope! Does no-one know how to chimney?
I soloed the inside version of this at the weekend. Great fun, but safe as houses, and certainly not HVD! VD max I recon (one steep pull over the boulder at the top, but good foot ledges).
Just realised my last comment may have been misleading. When I said safe as houses, I didn't mean in terms of gear, I just meant it would be very hard to fall off or out of. I didn't look at the gear, although there are plenty of chockstones to thread!
