Good effort. Good to see people are getting on it and giving the OS a go.
Interesting comment regarding the grade. Will the route ever 'firm up' in terms of looseness or is it the nature of the crag that theyll always be this way?
Physically speaking the route is reckoned to be about F7c
From the James Macaffie report :-
James continued: Physically it felt like 7a+
Is this the full hour argument or just the five minutes ...
Always here to pour petrol on troubled inferno's ;-)
I wonder if there'll be a Walk of Life level of comment retracting.
"if it were solid it would get E4 5c" as well...! Mind you that hardly ties up with 7a+ that well either does it, that should be more than E4 most of the time?
was this also Jack's first E8, onsight or otherwise?
i do think also that most of us will take grades on such loose cliffs as being more open to interpretation than on your average solid crag.
