βeta: Darius? Scoop Wall? Widely reckoned to be E3 if comments on this database are anything to go by.

βeta: Just thought I would add that this route is very safe with easy to place gear - as placments are quite worn. It is def sustained with no real rests - but very nice climbing too.

βeta: Good route that could do with a pumpy symbol, because it is. Intricate climbing and some great rock features.

βeta: I only seconded this one, but I agree with what the previous comment says - solid E3 and hard work getting the gear in and out.

βeta: Seemed solid E3 to me. Hard to get the crucial gear, no real rests, sustained, crux when you're pumped, all those things say E3. Downgrading the 'amenable E2s' eg Captain Reliable seems more appropriate.

βeta: Yeah, but it is only a hard E2 in reality - easier than Scoop Wall etc and plenty of others... Just E3 compared to Stadens ameanable E2's

βeta: In the 1987 Stoney guide, this was reckoned to be the 4th hardest _E3_ at Staden.
