Route Grade Votings

E1. A popular pitch on good rock and with good protection. Start below a slabby wall with two threads high up. Climb the short corner to the slanting crack and follow this then traverse right and climb directly up the slab until it steepens. Climb up to the left of a thread then move right. Continue up and slightly right following a thin crack. At its top, move left and then continue up slabs to a ledge.
compared to routes of a similar grade at sella and cabreras this might be worth 1 star, if you are going to chip and manufacture both holds and all the runner placements why not just put in bolts?
Good route - can be done on a single 70m rope as most of the gear is in a straight line, and then lower off.
Can't say I noticed any blatant chipped holds or nut placements - thought it well worth 3 stars - much more rewarding thean some polished bolted crap at Sella !
Agree with Simon's comments. I thought it was great, Good climbing and not polished. Didn't see any chipped holds.
i loved this route. definate 3 star experience. balancey and technical with a good strong line. and there was no polish whatsoever when i did it in 2004.
3 star for sure, reminded me a bit of Left Wall though not so steep
Fantastic route and still no polish in 2007!
In 2013 the only fixed gear is the two slings. They are well past their sell-by date so they must be backed up, so it ends up being a trad route, E1 being a more fitting grade than 6a. 3 stars and still not polished.
