The Roof Warrior*** 8a
[Dan Kyte on Roof Warrior (8a), Chee Dale Cornice, 2 kb]18m.

Rockfax Description
A superb route with three hard sections. The tricky lower wall leads to a shake-out at the roof. Gaining a good hold in the roof is difficult, then easier moves lead to the lip. One more tricky section pulling leftwards around the roof leads to the lower-off. © ROCKFAX

7c+. Also tried Monumental today and there's no way these two are within 1 grade. That should go up and this should go down.

Wasted quite a bit of time redpointing with bad sequences, felt really good when I got it right.
