Looking for a crag with a good number of good quality 7a/7a+/7b routes. Where could I find such a crag?

The best around here (Ariège) I'd say would be Alliat - especially Passe Murailles, le Livre and Spoulgas sectors. But Sibada and Saut de l'Ours are excellent too.

In reply to ilovetoclimb: Portland is Dorset has a good quantity of climbs in the 7s, probably several hundred in that range. Most of the climbing is vertical and quite techy. Bonus of being one of the sunniest areas in the UK.

In reply to ilovetoclimb: Portland is good at that grade range.

Wallsend South springs to mind as perhaps the best individual crag with perhaps 20 two or three star routes but there are superb low 7s on most of the western facing cliffs from Blacknor North to Coastguard.

Steeper and juggier than most of the Portland climbing, biceps rather than fingers!

In reply to ilovetoclimb: Malham has some reasonable routes in that range. Try Trow Gill after an extended dry spell.

What about Weem crag or Dumbarton rock? The various sport crags near Gairloch may also fit the bill according to the new Scottish Sport Climbs guidebook?

I would say that you'd be hard pressed to beat the Ormes at those grades. Some really great routes including Night Glue, Axle Attack, Mayfair, Bloodsports, The Bloods etc. All great quality...
