Re: Very nice!

thank you very much Borut!

Good question? My guess, maybe IV+?

...seems quite a few routes in the US (of what WE have done) are pretty relaxed with these...for example, historically the Liberty Crack route gets a NCCS grade of "V" implying a bivy being required. These days, most climbers probably do it in a day.

by the way, north face/Comici line was a harder day than Liberty Crack IMHO so probably should get a "V"....I don't know :)

cheers!

PS V VII- (looks funny)

Re: Very nice!

"Btw, when is your Route Page for the Comici coming out? "

Borut - I have no plans to put up the beta page for this one (I'm lazy). Please write it up (I'm sure you must have done it) - it SHOULD be included here on SP.

...when you put up a route write up here on SP, you can have the grade rating (V) appear on a different line than the UIAA difficulty rating (VII-)...so no confusion I think.
cheers!

Re: Very nice!

"Btw, didn't you 2 find it crowded? "
a little. 2 parties of 2 starting up the route when we showed up (slept too late :) & 1 fast party passing everyone later in the day. Worked OK: 2 parties ahead were moving at ~similar pace to us.
