Route Grade Votings

One of the West Country's great sport-routes. Low in the grade, but very pumpy and a touch polished. Start beneath a pocketed weakness.</br>Move up the weakness on good pockets and then swing right to good jams in the horizontal break at 6m. Make a hard move to a good pocket then lurch up the wall, first leftwards and then back right to a final heave onto easier ground.
mega, mega, mega. Sprint up the leaning wall with nicely spaced bolts. A clipstick takes the sting out of the start in these soft modern times...
I'd like to add, I don't think a photo-topo works very well for this wall, where much of it is obscured, or for the ferocity wall either, where the routes are identified by subtle features. The old line-topos in the old guide were much better.
Bring your biggest guns and a LOT of ammo - this puppy's a pumper. Solid for 7b.
An awesome route. Good holds when you need them, but still best done rapidly.
There is a new first bolt
