Came off avoiding the holds left of the bolts, clipped going left then came back to try and do it properly...felt pretty tenuous!

Over graded at 6b+, 6a+ would be OK following the natural line just left of the bolts.

Was concerned about going off route at an easy part, and took a small fall first time

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.

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!)
