Stunning route! Got it clean to the moves just after the rest which stopped me in my tracks. After working that out I got it clean to the lower off. Loved the final top moves just before the jugs - so good! Practiced the top section on top rope and then got it clean first red point attempt. 7b+ to onsight but 7b with clips in and beta/second go.

Hard and greasy. Ben put in a mint effort up to the bolt above the thread which is where I got to aswell. Though I didn't get it clean up to there. Awesome crag.

Outstanding. I don't think the rest detracts from quality. Tried a fortnight ago in shitty, wet conditions and dropped the crux bulge, so ground up ascent. Chuffed to get it after getting insane flash-pump on The Exile.

I can see how some people think this route is only 7b. It is very Spanish in style, big moves between generally good holds. I dropped the flash with masons beta on the last move. However the final boulder problem on the headwall has a short sequence on extremely small sidepulls, i think although soft for the grade of 7b+ moves on holds that small just warrant the grade. A good first 7b+ - One of the best routes on the orme.

If you could see the hidden sign it would say "This way to one of the best 7bs on the Orme!".

Very weird indeed: still fatigued after y'day eve's flash pump, bouldered in cave briefly before this but no warm-up route, totally detached but still engaged with the route. Anyway not many days I onsight 7b as a warm-up in the UK (draws in and chalked up so some way down the onsight spectrum). Really good climbing but really didn't feel very much emotion when on it, strange. As close as Pen Trwyn gets to continental sport: tufa and big holds throughout, really suited my style. Never 7b+ in a million years.

7b - a couple of hard moves above a hands-off rest at half-height.
