Excellent route with 3 hard sections. Took me 2 nonconsecutive days to work sequences, and another 2 and half red point days. Gone today! One of the best routes so far, and probably the hardest. Difficult to believe its Ďonlyí half grade harder to several 7bís Iíve done. Closer to 7c then 7b+? Got to move on Hall of Mirrors to be able to compare.

Now 7c with missing crux hold

Had to fight really hard, partly due to the fact I have no endurance whatsoever! In the end climbing really fast did the trick! Great route, would be hard to insight
grey wolf - Lead RP - 29/Aug/14

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 big stretch 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. As the climb now feels harder than Hall of Mirrors, perhaps the grade needs to be adjusted (hard 7c or soft 7c+?) It could do with a few more clean ascents, so a consensus could emerge. 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.

2nd go. Some great moves!

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

5th RP via easier right hand sequence
3 Names - Lead RP - 27/May/13 with Nick

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.
