Aurora*** 8a
[Kalydna, 3 kb]45m.

Rockfax Description
45m. From the right, an 8m scramble up an easy slab leads to a belay stance. Follow a direct line up the face, to an intermediate loweroff at 35m (7a+ to this point) to a big hole/cave just below the top (crux). Descent by 2 abseils on a 70m rope will *just* reach the top of the easy slab. Scramble down or a 3rd abseil to the ground. © ROCKFAX

The perfect route...steadily gets harder and harder to the crux after 55m. Found it quite mentally challenging.

Couldn't even figure out the first boulder problem, let alone the second one!

not one long mind blowing pitch as in the guide, rather 30m of 6a/b approach to 3 boulder problems

It's a long way to the crux so i was glad to get it 3rd go after just missing it 2nd go! Just one short crux near the top. Prob more like 7c?
