Video of new route ‘General Lee’

The title kinda speaks for itself lol this is the video of my new route ‘General Lee’

A friend of mine who has seen the video asked me why it was graded E5.

In my opinion this was on the edge of E4 and E5. So easy E5.
I came to this conclusion because a safe E4 would be E4 6b, as in there should be no chance of hitting the floor if you came off.

However … on General Lee if you where to come off at the crux you would be close if not landing on the floor, and if you came off any of the higher moves (one being a step on a tiny crimp) there would be no doubt of hitting the floor. The height is deceptive on the video due to the camera angle but with all the trees it was the only place to see the whole route.
The landing is not a good one being a bouldery floor.
