Hard crux! Nearly came off before I noticed the holds out right, BIG slap to the jug after the crack. Trick was to use the holds in the crack as little as possible!

Went 3rd go. Should have been 2nd go but for some unnecessary foot faf mid crux. The single hardest sequence of moves on the trip. 7 moves of V5 on top of 6b climbing followed by 5+ to the top. Excellent route. Did it 3 more times on the trip to put up and retrieve draws for friends.

Although the start and finish are easy the crux is desperate. feels harder than 7b and as hard or harder than some of the 7b+ routes on the same crag. Fantastic line and very enjoyable climbing.

On sighted by Bob. Desperate bouldery crux and way too hard for me. 7c.

good climbing, but couldn't get past the crux coming out of the overhang. got to hang some pretty crap holds there!

Akira has a tough move at the start to get you past the first clip then it gets really easy, so easy in fact you can get fully recovered for the crux which is much much harder! The real crux is getting through a scoop-crack on tiny two finger holds, its steep and powerful but the top tip is when it gets really hard; look right! I think Akira only gets 7b because of the jug pulling before and after the crux. A great climb.
