Can't take full tick for now as wasn't tempted by rotten rock of second half, but felt about V6 but those micro-holds feel bigger the smaller your fingers are!
DafSWMC - Lead RP - 02/Apr/11 with Gareth
Top roped the bottom and then lead through to 2/3rds height. It was getting a bit dark!
Holds very sharp - really only one move. Difficult to grade - crux is hard for a 7b. So probably 7b+ ish.

Gap grades! For me this route can be summarised as a short sharp V6 followed by a straightforward Fr6b+/6c - I agree with Simon, hard Fr7b seems about right - but it's always hard to find a consensus of grade when there's one short section that's massively harder than anything else on a route.
I find the crux moves of Mad harder than anything on Loctite, but in isolation not that much harder; on the whole though, Mad is an entirely different proposition and at least a full grade harder.

So close to onsighting this - fell off at the belay! Way easier than Mad At The Sun though - it's my type of route, but it can't be more than hard 7b, maybe soft 7b+
simonr - Lead - 05/Jun/10 with Caspian Johnson
Ok, i didunt do it, buuuuutttt how is this giveun 7b? the moves on the micro edges are harder than the crux on mad at the sun and thats geting on 7c+ maybe 8a! if kevs right and its V7 that makes it a Fr7c. when the hole in my finger heels i will be back!

The grades at The Gap do my head in! I have no idea what grade this really is. I did this on my 1st RP after a couple of 2nd's and it felt fairly easy. The problem is, I'd tried the start as a boulder problem with a pad previously and it felt hard and around V7. I've got lighter (=stronger) lately so it felt straight forward but can this really only be 7b!? Video of boulder problem start here: http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=IAVaVKpib-U
KH - Lead RP - 25/Sep/08 with Ben Mitchell
Mark Walter - TR dog - 19/Feb/08 with Paul Black
Fell off once at 5', then straight up. Monster fall from clipping belay, since Roy Thomas (40ft away, very cheesy grin), had just bolted up an extra 7' when re-equipping it, but not cleaned it (or told me). The rope was in poor shape, and stripped, so I went about 30'. Exciting!
