Definitely Entrada - some is really good, and some is horrifying. Exercise care...

To Andrew . You picked about the worst section of rock in that area re pitch two Cenotaph Spire.. The other routes in the area are not quite as scarey!!

Could (have?) any of the c1 routes been freed?

I have not heard of any C1 being freed . I guess Family Plot might ? Coffin Doger , and maybe some of Lost World would go all free ?
