Just wondering if Silas has opened his project next to 'Puppet on a string?

Is the pocket the starting hold? Silas is a tall bugger right, so does that mean if you can't reach the starting pocket then you can use a cheat stone to get to it?
Also what is the deal with the open project on the trump roof? Any idea of a grade?

Hi guys

The line was toproped by Jono Fisher back in the 80's (hence it was called Jono's Route). It starts from the pocket (so build a cheat stone if you can't reach) - although a start from the ground is possible... just hard. Originally it was graded 27, although it does feel pretty easy for that grade. There are about 10 different crux sequences.

I bolted the roof near Trump in 1991 (actually Adrian Kohler finished bolting it). Clinton tried it earlier this year and did all the moves. I think he said 32 or 33 (but I may be wrong).

Ciao

I'd say 26 is a fair grade but that'll depend on your sequence for sure! Felt about the same as 'Digital'

I agree with that grading - although Digital would be easier to onsight (it's pretty obvious, just needs a little heave-ho).

However, both grades go up dramatically if you are stupid enough to try the routes on a hot summer afternoon...
