Hold came off this tonight. The vertical crimp (top of shattered flake) just after the boulder problem start. Climbed it without the hold. The move is slightly harder but grade is unchanged.

loved the climbing right up my street first day on the route mananged to top rope clean on first visit, went for the redpoint but left foot popped by first draw and cut my hand in the flake came back to day put clips in and had no worries done first redpoint the lower moves to the break were hard and the holds on the top crux where small and sloppy but the best move on the route chuffed to have done 2nd 8a.
