Just "first ascent" would do. Surely no-one claims first ascents with pre-placed gear and one rest??

it looks about VS-HVS, surely that crack is jamming width? and a tiny route like that can't be that sustained..? so it's harder than teck crack (roaches)or mangler, unprintable (stanage)

Appearances can be deceptive, it overhangs by a couple of metres. It's only had one clean ascent so the grade is still an estimate.

Yeah. I'm pretty much upside down there, but it doesn't look that way really

This one shows the angle rather better!

I meant to say horizontal, not upside down!! :)

"I would estimate at E1/2 5b P1"...

Surely only the biggest muppet in the world would bullshit about a route being easier than it really is, after they've so drastically failed to cope with being beaton to the first ascent?
