Slatebite** 7a
[Raji top roping Slatebite F7a , 1 kb]15m. Wall 20m to the right of stretch limo. line of four bolts to a double lower off.
start up the groove, then awkward moves to the tall pocket out right, up and into this, then make a hard move up to gain the fourth bolt then the top.
I need to extend the chain at the lower off, as the rope rubs over some rough bits of slate, so ab off or extend for the top rope!

Good fun line. I eventually made the crux moves after a long while trying to figure the best option for me. Glad I could make my foot smear stick after my terrible/non existent footwork of the day before!

Really good moves. Got it second go after a hidden foothold was revealed. Amazed that Raji got up this as she only climbs once every few months.
