First go, after finding the crucial holds. Slapping for the sloper/crimp was exciting. 7a/+.

I found a very powerful sequence avoiding the really thin holds but staying in line with the route. Right hand in undercut on the big block after first bolt. Right heel below it, high left foot on block. Left hand on good crimp far out left then a powerful crank over the heel to gain the sloping crimps at the top with right hand (lots of core tension required!). Not sure if this is too off route but it felt harder than any other 7a+ or the 7b I've done so far.

Finally got it! Very hard crux sequence. It is not eliminate at all, the line is very obvious and the moves are enjoyable.

What a dirty eliminate pile of bollocks. It all seems to be about 2 hard pulls on crimps and thats it??

so eliminate! decent climbing but sense that youre off route is unavoidable unless you go strictly direct which is v artificial. 6c+ / 7a if you go left at crux?
