Irrespective of whether it's soft for the grade or not I found this pretty cruxy, those holds in the middle section are sickeningly small and I found a workable sequence hard to find (for me it was more of a challenge than Toadal Recall)

Close, but still find that middle move hard.

Second redpoint. In a sesh which is unusual for malham. Nice climbing apart from that grim undercut on the crux... 7c+ I think.

Excellent wall climbing with a crimpy crux. Don't blow it on the sloper clipping the chain!

2 days, 3rd redpoint. May well be tough 7c+, but did feel harder than Main Overhang and L'Obsession. Surprisingly pumpy after the crux section.
