I would say the grade to new finish is about E1 5b/c.

Oh well, not really in shape to climb the finish that I cleaned last year. Dave did let me know he'd also spotted this finish too. What's the grade?

New alternative finish to the route. Climb the crack to 2/3rds height then traverse rightwards to small roof below top wall and gear. Climb centre of wall on great holds to the top.

seconded Dave on this at the weekend, a good alternative finish with a few bold moves to get under the small roof, but with good holds above.

Very nice climb and line. Sustained climbing but gear there. 3*star route in my opinion. Nice one Geoff.

Struggled up this climb on Saturday the 29/09/07. A very pumpy top end E1. A great line.

Paul Harrington - 23/07/2007
Climbed this on 21/7/07. Excellent route. While the moves are not that difficult, gear is a little fiddly and the hanging around placing it gives the route a very sustained feel. Definitely not E1 IMO. I'd put it at E2.
