I'm sure this has come up and been answered before but I couldn't find it on the site.
I'm interested in the name + grade of the route on Voodoo that goes up two-three metres to the right of Chinese Algebra with a couple of bolts. Judging by the thecrag.com, it's Full Frontal, a 21. Is this correct? Anybody have the FA details?
Aah, yes, there's the info - all but the name. Didn't have any beta to base it on when I did it, but felt 20ish to me. Definitely worth a star.
It seemed to me the hard move at the top is easily side-stepped - from the ledge step 1 metre to the RHS and cruise up on the prominent blocks. For me the coolest move was the one at the first bolt - a nice scuttle up, out and over on some nice crimps. Also, the first bolt is one of those inconvenient fat-boys you come across - I didn't have a plate wide enough to fit over it.
