The Shells, The Shells* 7a

Rockfax Description
Eliminate in style, but worthwhile climbing. Start below a diagonal crack and a bolt between two staples. Climb the lower dirty wall and continue to the upper face, which gives good moves, though on a very tight line. © ROCKFAX

good route which has hard to read/blind climbing. Maybe if this route is worked so you know where all the good holds are then it wont feel like a 7a but it felt like it for the onsight as i missed a few good holds!
