βeta: Mild for the grade if you're stacked up with RPs, Peenuts, Offsets, Swedges etc etc - the gear is there and although small is usually good. A really good route that is like a little slice of the Culm coast in the Peaks, with the delightful delicacies that entails. Only misses out on 3 stars due to the lesser start and finish.

βeta: Soft rock? This is Staden, not Red Walls! The route can be laced with great RPs in which case...steady away!

samt 24 Jul Lead O/S Very soft and not really E3 (so long as others have said, you've got lots of RP2s etc). The gear placements are all pretty bomber. Climbing is easier than it looks from the ground too. Soft E2 I'd say.
