Lower Silvermine: Grades and Route Names

Post by Xharlie » Tue Dec 20, 2011 2:57 pm

Hi, All.

I have noticed that the route descriptions on the wiki for Silvermine Lower Crag differ greatly from those found in Western Cape Rock - the generally accepted guide book. Which ones are more correct?

Some particular issues that I have picked up:
  • "Jedeiah" is graded 18 on the wiki but 17 in the book.
  • "Hard as it Gets" is graded 17 on the wiki and 15 in the book.
  • "Between the Lines" doesn't appear on the wiki page at all.
  • "Vlad the Impaler" doesn't appear on the wiki page at all.

Grading is personal!
Ask Justin if you can update the wiki- I do it when I have the time-
no one is getting paid here,
Also check out 8a, best place to get grade info, although peeps seem to overgrade on that site
