[Steve on Wargames, 4 kb]24m. This fantastic route ranks as one of the best of its grade in the country. The steep lower section gives dynamic climbing on reasonable holds. Once through the lower bulge the stunning upper wall is about as good as it gets. Enjoy! © ROCKFAX

Burly through the bottom 1/4, then nice and more technical above. Not sure about the headwall being "as good as it gets" - it's decent, but not mind-alteringly superb.

fantastic climb. got to be one of the best 7a+'s anywhere. very pleased to get this. Tried it a year or two ago and really struggled. 1 go putting clips in, a play on the steepness, a good rest then did it. steepness is not my thing.
