Route Grade Votings

A monster pitch. Increasingly difficult climbing gains a steep wall with a leaning borehole. Perplexing and strenuous moves up this access the easier but pumpy and rounded upper wall.
Certainly memorable. Some good rock and a good position, but more than it's fair share of choss. The top section is awful, and I like climbing at places like Red Wall at Gogarth!
Did this again on Saturday (24.12.05) to check these comments. The whole thing was in perfect nick with no 'choss' whatsoever. The upper wall though feeling a little run out remains brilliant although I admit to a bit of dust on the ledges below. Considering you've done a 7a to here, I don't think a section of grade 4 climbing for 15ft with a bit of dust should be too difficult to deal with.
Did this with skyhooks years ago.
Really nice route, generally clean and ok rock. However right near the top all routes tend to suffer (to varying degrees) from rock which has tiny flaky edges coming off. However there are plenty of good foot holds and handholds to use, avoiding the poorer ones.
great route, as gary says there is no more than a bit of dust on it. Andy s, what are you on about?
