Amazing grade VI challenges on the some of the cleanest granite in the world. Most routes rely on some aid, but many have now been freed.

Hi Smelly Fox, how do you feel about changing some of the grades back to their aid ratings? So the Nose 5.10 C1? Its only had like 4 ascents at 5.14 so most/all people will be logging it as that. Alternatively, can we add new routes? so the Nose would have 2 entries? Also Triple Direct is in at 5.13d, it has the same crux as the Nose Thanks
