Decent route, not nearly as good as empire. Found this the easiest of the 7b's at anstey's
dannyboy83 - Lead RP - 14/Sep/13 with Jonny P, Nathan, Dave Moir, Ben Harper

sharp and hard crux with a fun second half and tricky slab at the top
misterb - Lead dog - 08/Aug/13 with nick

Hard for 7b, in my opinion 7b+. Decent route once you've done everything on Empire Wall
Ramon Marin - Lead RP - 04/Aug/13 with adam brown

Didn't really enjoy this, the last section on the mono's was fun but most of the route is just painfully sharp.

Got on this last week as it was the first time I have seen it dry this year.However one of the better holds below the last runner blew off into lots of pieces when i held it. Now a touch more sustained, great route for the boulderers out there!

Hard, bouldery, sharp, but somehow appealing! I loaned it some skin from my fingers. But I will be back.

A very different style of climbing to Empire but probably the same grade - while the lower section is much harder (though footwork easier for the tall) the moves above ease off very quickly. A good route.
