Route Grade Votings

This fantastic route ranks as one of the best of its grade in the country. The steep lower section gives dynamic climbing on reasonable holds. Once through the lower bulge the stunning upper wall is about as good as it gets. Harder since the loss of a small bush used at the start.
Utterly stunning route of great character and quality. Soild 7b.
I got on this route after a long lay off (as a warm up) and the routes a path now man. looks like a natural break though anyway off stateside man
I did this route last week 7a (7a+ last time I did it) rumour is an Ulverstonion has been trying this for the last 5 years
Flared tufa pinch hold now has good edge. hard 7a
I fell off for the umteenth time and kicked the rock (as hard as I possibly could) and my actions caused a section of it to kick off which made the hold better so I tried to round the edge with a hammer unfortuatly the tufa cracked so I smashed it off with a hammer. Sorry but a least I got up it next redpoint. Sorry
i heard that a "loose tuffar" was removed leaving a better hold now. Around 7a? - comments please
I found this route harder than Indecent Exposure and Tinoff at Raventor both(7b)or Night Glue at LPT (7a+), definitly top end 7b.
i onsighted this route a very long time ago 1993 was climbing well at the time, got back on it a few years later didn't do to well, but tried it again end of this feb the steep section is now a path u hardly get pumped cause of the hold thats been improved 7a tops but like to know what others think
I did this route at the weekend. Given peoples comments I could see no good good flat holds (there all u/c sidepulls) replacing tufas. Though I found the chapel ethic of using insitu trees at the bottom of routes a bit dubious. 7a+ up to 5th bolt, easier than Electric Warrior. Though lacking stamina I took a good while to shake my way out up the top section to the chain. A superb adventure for a sport route!
