Route Grade Votings

When clean this is a worthwhile pitch. Follow Market Forces to the top of the right-facing corner. Better holds allow the overlap and lower-off above to be reached.
Has something come off the start of this? The first few moves felt very fingery and bouldery for the grade. Cool moves into the corner and some really enjoyable climbing up the wall above - shame it's short lived.
It always did have a bouldery start, Andy. If you are disappointed its short lived try the continuation of Market Forces. Even cooler moves!
The start once you've got it sussed was fingery but stable last year. I looked at the extension but the lichen levels are pretty dire, you'd have to stick up it to get down it to clean it - currently unclimbable unfortunately.
Cheers both, the move did seem ok in the end but it took a bit of working out and it looked like something may have snapped off somewhere. I guess the lie-down ledge immediately after lessens the impact a bit! I'll take a brush up next time I'm there, the routes on this wall look superb and worth a bit of cleaning time.
This wall is pretty easy to clean from above. Lots of big trees on top to ab from. The lichen brushes off fairly easily when its dry.
