Desperot* V9 / f7C
6m. 6m. The direct start to Despot is well named. In the unlikely event of being successful, escape rightwards from the break. The problem was unnamed, though Desperot has become the norm. In recent years it sees to have dropped off the bouldering hit list and the grade is something of a guess. © ROCKFAX

Absolutely brilliant controlled lash for the break. Such a good problem. Solid 7A if you ask me

Font 7a. Brilliant problem, not really that morpho unless your very small. Its about a british tech 6b move, nowhere near british 7a.

Agree with Rob that its probably 7b. One of the best problems in the peak!
