Just back from a trip to Araps yesterday, and what a fine day it was, blue sky, not much wind, and it's meant to be Winter! When it's gonna snow - but that's another thread! Anyway, led Social comment (13) then Rush Hour (15). Is it just me, or does anyone else think that the grades on these are skew wiff? Social Comment - meant to 13 - felt quite fiddly and technical in places to me. Rush Hour - meant to be 15 - and admittedly a short little route, felt easy as, like no way this was 15 if Social Comment was 13!
Are these the wrong way round? I saw plenty of climbers climbing Social Comment yesterday so what did everyone else think?
I was also there on sunday and have climbed them both a couple of times. Rush hour is a 14 in Mentz's guide and Social Comment is 13 but feels hard for the grade, is hard for the grade. Both felt similar to me...
