Echo Wall | E11 Trad climb at Ben Nevis

https://www.ukclimbing.com/logbook/crags/ben_nevis-16877/echo_wall-509906

The hardest trad route in the UK? 8c sport climbing in a really dangerous position.

The grade is a bit of a stab in the dark as the FA didn't offer a grade and it's not had a second ascent.

On the grade:

Do you see my problem? I am uncomfortable with the feeling of grades advancing too quickly due to overgrading, but on the other hand feel that Echo Wall might well earn a laughable quanta of E points over anything else I’ve done, based on the way the E scale has been used traditionally over the past couple of decades. I just don’t know. [1]
