Route Grade Votings

The right-hand arete is gained with difficulty. It is also possible to get at it from the right and continue for a HVS 5b.
If you move off the undercuts to reach the base of the arete before moving up this is at least a grade harder than Suzanne [both technical and adjectival].
Is this the blunt right arete of the buttress and not the hanging arete just to its left!
Yep, the blunt arete on the right of the buttress feels exactly right at this grade. Hard moves to start up and right-wards, back left to the arete, and then cruise upwards. 6a for the starting moves, but I backed off the top out. Wouldn't have done so with gear in, but just felt a little gripped on solo. Suzanne's first few moves are a harder 6a, but not greatly so...
Finale 'proper' goes out under the roof to the hanging arete then up this before tackingling the easy upper section.
I am pretty sure Final is not the hanging nose but the blunt rib to the right of it.
