the bolts are some what old and rusty and it made it definitely feel more like a trad route than a sport.and there is no way its 6a+ as it says in the frcc book.it was 6b/+ if you were to give it a sport grade which works out as the correct translation of English 5c anyway! However it was an awesome route of great character!jon_gill1 - Lead O/S - 30/Nov/13 with ross garfoot, chris Lyness

Failed on the last move, but lots of really cool but hard moves to get there. Harder than 6a+ i'd say.

Guide says F6a+, but at least 6b and very sustained. But since I carried gear, placed gear and scared myself, I'm claiming E2 !

No way it's E2 5c because there's loads of bolts in it. It's actually given a sport grade in the selected guide: F6a+. I'd say it's more like F6b in my opinion.
I backed up some of the bolts with wires on this ascent and also used a sling over a spike, as I didn't like the look of some of the bolts.
By the way, it's a FANTASTIC climb! With many and varied weird positions and moves that you'd only find on slate! Highly recommended.
