Quickly worked out the moves and then sent first go. Soft for 7B+, but a great problem in a beautiful setting. Just a bit midgey this time of year...

Second go, should've flashed it! Not harder than 7b in my opinion but I am a lank..

Possibly the most picturesque setting in the Peak but a little too close the stream for my liking, great problem all the same!

Thuggy. Went left hand first to the nose and topped out above the river on the right. Hardish 7B or soft 7B+?
