12m. A powerful problem using the pinch to get the undercut. The wall above is easier but don't relax before the finish. © ROCKFAX

Hidden - Lead RP - 10/Oct/13

Flashed the boulder then fell off immediately after HAHA! Found some holds and did it next go, felt quite soft for 7c+... Maybe it's the long arms?

innes - Lead RP - 2012

Thugtastic! Not over until the chain, so keep some shoulder power in reserve for the last move.

A great powerful bouldery start with a sustained finsh felt too hard for 7c+ though done on first redpoint.

Can't see how people are voting 8a for this. The top wall just isn't hard enough to warrant the 8a grade. 7c+, although a hard one if you find the bottom move at your limit.
