This climb makes no sense... The loweroff does not appear to be above the only sensible way to finish the boulder problem at the finish (traversing right). I was unwilling to commit to trying it since it seemed a) much harder than 6a+ and b) has a potentially dangeous swing since the lower off seems to be about 3 foot left of the top of the route. All just above a ledge, of course. Those with me who did climb it agreed with my assessment.

Easy first three meters at 3a, the last move is all 6a you have to comite right by half a meter or so in the Grove at the top good hand holds can be found just not obvious. If you you never did this climb you would not regret it. Was some small lose debris but mostly clean.

Very, very dogged. Took unpleasant lead fall nearly decking on ledge, then eventually made final move having clipped anchors by cheating...

No matter how I tried I couldn't finish this. Eventually clip sticked the lower off and was glad I hadn't committed to the irreversible move going out right (for my height anyway). Still couldn't make any impression on a top rope afterwards. Hmm - has something fallen off..

Interesting route - didn't seem loose at all but the top was insane, very difficult if you go up the groove.

Hell of a big top move, took three falls. Route seems to be clean now.

Very, very VERY loose. Between the second and third bolt I pulled off a big block and fell. I tested a few other flakes and they just crumbled away. Might clean up with some traffic, but for the meanwhile I'd stay well away. Here's the video.
