SteWatkins - May/12

Done last year, wimping out to left. This time went very direct up bolt line: much harder and better. I thought this way worth an extra star and solid 6b+. A couple of really good technical slab moves.

IamJam - Lead O/S - 05/Apr/12

Bit pointless.
vertigo - Lead β - 02/Apr/12 with Billy

Agree with previous posts, this is not 6b+, 6a+ or even 6a seems right

Much easier than the Rockfax guidebook grade of 6b+ if you use obvious holds to left of bolts.

Went off route at "crux" ... ran out of holds and took a swinging fall which brought me right back to the starting ledge...CRACKING! Did it clean second go when I stayed on the route!

Very soft touch compared to the majority of El Chorro grading; although found most of Escalera Arabe to be much more generously graded (to my delight, having been spanked off several 6b+s on the previous few days!)
