Pill Box Graded List

I haven't really climbed much on the box since 2009 but Nodder's recent interest has resulted in me having a few sessions there and i've been reminded about how cool it is. I used to go there so much and its been great doing some of the classics again. Some of the grades have shifted a bit as things have got repeated so i thought i'd blog about these changes and hopefully some more folk will get keen. Its such a good angle and the rock and the link up possibilities make it great training and a great place to get some ticks. More people climb Jack Daniels Connection these days and it appears the logical way to do it isn't my original 7b+ sequence. So this gets 7b now. There is also a easier way of climbing Ain't No Party when coming from the right so this affects the grades of Drink Driving/Ain't no Party (7b now) and Jack Daniels/Ain't no Party (7b+ now). Tommy repeated Millenium Party and thought 7c+ was fair. As Millenium Drive is a hard 7c in itself and this finish is slightly harder i'm inclined to agree. Pete Robins has done an eliminate between Chocolate Wall wwhich he has named Screwball. I had a quick go today but the high crimp was horrible on my index finger so i left it. No split tips please! I regret the Cypriot problems, they're pointless. Here is my list (attempted to put them in order of difficulty), hope i havent missed anything:

10. Jack the Greek - 7c
11. The Malteser - 7c
12. Last Rites Assis - 7c
13. Screwball - 7b+
