Rockfax Description
A pleasant route that goes directly through The Great Curve and feels more like 6c than E4. Start right of The Great Curve and gain the ledge and bolt at 5m. Move directly up into The Great Curve and clip its bolt and then head straight up the wall passing a few more bolts after the first the route turns the screws slightly. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
F6c and rather pleasant, although a steady start to the first of 4 bolts

Nice climbing but probably should be given a sport grade of 6c

Fantastic sustained climbing never too desperate. Can't claim the trad grade as I clip stocked the first bolt.

Not E4, a sport grade would be more suitable (6b+?)

Graeme Hammond 02/Apr 2nd O/S

Fairly steady on 2nd but stupidly couldn't commit to a move by the 3rd bolt when I tried to lead afterwards, one to try again...

Not as hard as imagined, but still above my current level.

max_dickens 24/Apr/16 Lead O/S

Good route with snappy flakes but not worthy of a trad grade in my opinion

Did top half thinking it was great curve so did it from the ground straight after. Excellent crimpy climbing but more sport than trad.

Nice climbing - absorbing but not desperate. More 6b than E4 - the bolts may be spaced but you're well protected where it matters.

Watched Scott climb it first. Looked safe enough so gave it a bash. Difficulty increases with height to crux at top. Safe E4.

pretty soft really well protected awesome route!

Quality route but very safe and straightforward- basically an F6b with a bolt missing.

Missing a bit from around the third bolt - probably makes the start of the crux sequence a bit easier, but I can't really compare.

Chunk come out of bottom of crux - new big hold.
