Route Grade Votings
Total votes cast 16
Start from in-cut slots and follow the crack rightwards. Variations - finish up Problem 5, 6 or 7. Photo page 59.
My first V8 and it seemed more like V6, either a soft touch or my kind of problem. (No option to vote for V6 so I'll go with V7). Starting from the big flat hold to the left of the in-cut slots probably doesn't add to the grade but certainly adds to the interest. Either way its a great problem, fingery to start and with a distinct lack of footholds in the middle!
Probably harder for the tall since you are quite bunched up for the whole of the traverse.
Perhapse it felt V6 cos it is V6, hence the name the V6 traverse.
Perhaps you can gather from my comments that it was originally given V8 and called the V8 Traverse.
A nice little problem but it's not V6. Steady V5 would be about right.
