Very much a soft touch, think 6c would be about right.

Second attempt, Extremely easy for the grade, would of been tempted to give it a 6c personally, ok route, nothing special.

My first ever 7a onsight, have to say I didn't think it felt 7a, but then it is my style - short, not very steep and super-crimpy.

Really is a soft touch, considering I couldn't link a neighbouring F6c+ on a top-rope without a rest. Fun though.
