Pretty steady for the grade but brilliant nonetheless. Basically 2 boulder problems between rests. Cool toe hook possible on the first crux if you can get your foot in the pocket.

Cool moves. Start is steep and looks hard but the holds are better than they appear from the ground. Crux is going through the bulge and is easier for the tall.

Thought the one to the left was a bit harder to pull over the bulge

Great route, good bouldery crux and a good flowy wall above.

Very nice! First 7a+! A couple of hard moves at the bottom but no harder than it's 7a neighbour after that!

My first outdoor 7a+. Only an easy 7a+ if you can power through the first moves. 2nd clip is a tough one, upper crux not any harder.

On Simons draws. 7a in local guide. Fun moves.

jgustafsson 24/Dec/11 Lead O/S

For me distinctly harder than the route to the left (did them back to back) so perhaps just about scrapes in at 7a.

My kind of route, wall climbing into a rest into a bouldery crux, but a tad soft...

Had to come back and do it clean since it annoyed me last time and was so enjoyable too! Great route, lots of interest all the way....

soft for 7a really, let alone 7a+

One rest I didn't really need...doh....seems a gift at the grade but pretty sustained with lots of climbing on it....

jacobjlloyd 09/Jul/10 Lead β

Really fun! Crux at the bottom, one more hard move... This is a moderate 7a and the route to the left is 7a+. Error in the rockfax guide. All other guides I've seen agree. Should change it really...

brilliant- felt quite ballsy going through the pocket to big undercut in the roof. a fall here would be unpleasant. fell off reaching for the big break after the crozzly holds on clip above roof while saying 'you little bastard' grand stuff
