I exited Big XXL for 7b, I was too pumped for the 7b+ and too tired to try it again if I fell.

Didn't do the full line, just the roof problem to the good rest, then fell off the 6b somehow. Happened to be trying it when Chris and Daila turned up, so Daila and I had a laugh trying it wet before they went back to their friend's magnificent yacht for lunch...
Guidebook is wrong (again) about this line. It is not chossy at all, but actually has awesome moves one awesome holds through the roof to the lip! It is however not a complete independent line, it is a water start to the existing lines. From the lip, heading up the 6b is about 7a, but to finish up Big XXL would be solid 7a+.

Started on the ledge in the water in the cave. Big moves, heel hooks and toe jams keeping weight off arms, moving through bulge on tufa to the top - pump fest! hard as hell!
