/ Sport grades for Southern Sandstone Routes
Here goes as a start.
Temptation - 7b/+
Senerade Arete - 7a
Digitalis - 7a+
Sandman - 7a
Hate - 6c (ish)?
Pig's nose - 5/+
Of the routes you've listed that I know, I'd agree with your grades, except for digitalis. No way it's 7a+, prob only 6c+.
Carbide Finger 8a
The Thing. Ungradeable!!!

Then doesn't that put Serenade Arete back to 6c? (I remember coming v close to success on this rather than Digitalis).
Braintree grades are tough!
Krait Arete 7a+ ?
