1. What were the only routes given the grade of 5.10 inn the 1964 'Gunks guide?

Add Never Never Land and Nosedive to Dizzy's Matinee and Retribution.




No, those were 5.9 until the recent (last 10years) upgradings.



Um, sorry Dizz, I have a copy of the 64 Gran guide sitting next to me on the desk. Both Nosedive (pg. 63) and Never Never Land (pg. 110) were graded 5.10. What you're remembering was the downgrading to 5.9 in the 72 Williams guide. In the 1980 red Dick, Nosedive was still 5.9 but NNL was back up to 5.10.

Marc is right. What is also mildly interesting is that at various times, Never Never Land has been rated 5.10, 5.9, 5.9+ and 5.10-.
