Nice shot, looks like a decent route. (I'm curious about the sport grading but the wire being used lower down. Is this just a run-out section he's at?)

There is no bolts on this route- it's a 25m trad crack in Sweden. In sweden we use grades that only takes the technical difficulty into account, much like the french grades. I don't know what a well protected f6b+ would correspond to in the brittish scale. According to the rockfax conversion table it should be something like E3, 6a if I read it right. I wasn't sure so i used french grades.

Ah, got you now! Not sure re grade conversion, but from a purely personal experience, F6B+ "feels" more like brit 5B-5C. I'm probably wrong though! ;)
