At last! For "shorties" like me (5' 9") the third crux is really hard, as now that the old hold has gone, you have to make the move from just a pinch and that's after using quite a bit of power on the other two cruxes. The first crux is pretty hard in itself - if you go direct (which you should) - and the second isn't a pushover either. You need very good friction all the way up. The whole climb felt solid 7c to me, maybe even harder. Having said that, for those about 4" taller than me with very good footwork, the top crux may still go at 7b+ but for some reason, "taller" persons seem to have trouble with the first crux. As the climb now feels harder than Hall of Mirrors, perhaps the grade needs to be adjusted. It could do with a few more clean ascents, so a consensus could emerge from those (and only those) that manage it. Anyway, today it felt effortless - which made a change!

Moved from the 'total bafflement' to the 'completely overwhelmed and feeling weak' stage

Finally! It does go with the missing hold on the upper crux, at least if you're tall :)
lewiz - Lead RP - 12/Apr/14

New upper crux sequence without 'crux hold'. Won't work for shorties but the grade isn't changed. Stuck the second crux dyno but fell on the upper crux. Will go soon.
lewiz - Lead dog - 30/Mar/14

Made a really great link to the dyno move (fall). After a rest I looked set to make it to the top but pulled off the 'crux' hold. The final crux is now considerably harder and I've not managed to do the moves from off the rope. Forum post to follow as I have the hold in my chalk bag. Perhaps a candidate for glue, or the route might now be as hard as Hall of Mirrors.

Tired. Feels hard for 7b+ but should go when I'm fresh.

5th RP via easier right hand sequence

Ambitiously went for an end of day on-sight but way to technical and weird. Def worthwhile - some great moves.

Brilliant route, amazing moves. Bloody hard for 7b+ I thought. Felt solid 7c. Was quite warm I suppose
Ged Desforges - 2012

Should have gone second go, eventually took four rps. Very good climbing. Felt low in the grade to me.

schof - Lead RP - 13/May/10 with trev ford

Awesomely technical feature grappling. Longest I've spent on a route, took 9 days and 11 RP attempts. Tried on 14/03, 02/04 - 09/04, 24/04 and 26/04. Did the direct (harder) sequence past 4th bolt. Finally clipping the chains felt pretty sweet.
