[Pulling hard on the crux of Alex's Roof V6, 3 kb]An amazing looking problem out from the back of a 45 degree roof. Follow edges, pockets and one big quartz pebble via long reaches to get to the break on the lip. Bring a spotter!

First ascent i think since pebble was pulled off. Never tried the line before so went for the onsight. Not sure on grade 7a+??

Really sharp! Be ready for uncomfortable hands, and beware of flappers. Unfortunately the climb is no more however. Got the last ascent before someone snapped the main large pebble used for the big move to the slopey pocket. Climbs may still be possible, but at harder grades for sure. Anyone with this in mind, just be aware you may be dissapointed

brilliant problem. seem to be slightly too many ways of doing essentially the same thing on here though…..all with different names / grades…….

Badass problem, cut looses, body tension, big moves, perfect roof climbing. Took a wild swing off the final jug and just dodged landing on the tree but figured it out after that
