|This was listed in the old guide as 12b to the original anchor below the black rock. My opinion is 12c with or without the extension. Also note that the 'extension' is now the only route - the old anchors were removed. This applies to all the routes here that received extensions. Some of them got much harder so do not rely on the old guide grades.|

Not all the routes that received extensions had their original anchors removed. SWTWC and Armageddon still have their old chains because the extensions are far more difficult. I agree 12c on 1st Blood to the old anchors. There's a move passing that spot now, but it's not as hard as anything lower on the route.
This wall is absolutely brilliant.

|This is the most fun thing on rock. Simply amazing rock and beautiful movement. The extension just adds to the quality of the climb. Brilliant|
