Route Grade Votings

The superb curving-corner is polished but remains a wonderful climb. Bolts have made it a sport route but for the full 3-star experience you must finish up the final groove then step right and move up to the lower-off. Added Value, 7b. - Finish up Full Value from the first lower-off.
I'm suprised anyone would think that it doesn't deserve 3*. Despite the polish its an incredible pitch at the grade - probably the best sub-7a route in Yorkshire and the Peak?
6b+ only I reckon! Polished? I didn't really notice but I think I climb at raven tor too much! Definitive 3 star route though
would be even better if the old tat had been removed and nothing put in its place. Now as one of the easier routes in a demanding district its fate is as a warm up route and the even worse polish that this will surely entail.
Now has a double bolt belay at the top of the groove underneath the roof which means u dont have to traverse right (unless u really want to)
Why am I not down as having seconded the first ascent?
bag of rubbish-its a polished horror show. really didnt enjoy it one bit. perhaps we'd been spoiled by the routes we did at malham the day before, but i really thought this wasnt much fun. do yourself a favour and drive down the road to some grit. or malham.
True Mr Desforgeseseses this is a pants route, but it's certainly doesn't epitomise the crag. Do yourself a favour and try some of the other routes!
So polished! Felt like I should of brought ice skates rather than rock boots.
This was better as trad route. I did it in `82 with the old pegs, nuts and threads and it was safe. Not so sure it's as good as it's made out to be.
If you werent impressed you obviously only went to the first lower off.
