Pitch 2 - 5.9

Pitch 2 - 5.9

Please excuse the poor quality of this photo - Michael was smoking again. Climb left facing corner past 2 bolts to a ledge. Traverse left 3 meters to a right facing corner with a crack. A couple of 5.9 stemming moves get you past the crux (slightly overhanging start), then move right past a bolt. You will soon spot a rappel anchor. This one was in a bad shape.

5.9 is it V+ uiaa?Always confused when comparing different grades.Probably not comparable because english gritstone has different shape.

Re: Grading?

Thanks... very useful table.
I found a lot of difference between the same grades, e.g. some areas are more soft. I think that this route is easier...(at least felt super easy for me).
