Tried this a long time ago and couldn't get off the floor. A brilliant problem took me quite a few attempts today. The last move before you hit the top is very on or off. I think hard for the grade

Second go, after I bailed out of the first because both shoes had holes in. A change of shoes and everything was much better!

around 15 go's? Harder than some 7a's ive done - including Breakfast and The Nose at burbage south, and harder than the big dyno at the roaches imo. brilliant though!

Harder than it looks. One of the footholds is getting polished.

A gritstone classic. Great problem (good landing, even if it dosn't look like it at first)... and standard V4 (not V3 as BMC guide would suggest). Font 6b. Very rewarding when you pull over the top
