Cool link up. Harder than Threadbare in my opinion, soft 8a or hard 7c+. Maybe the Spanish slash grade is useful here, 7c+/8a. My vote goes for 8a as it took me longer than Cider Soak and Leather Whip Mick, 9 redpoints. But maybe I'm just weaker, who knows. I did it in the same style as Ellis, pre-clipped the 2nd and 3rd bolt and un-clip the first one to avoid nasty rope drag

Second Ascent. First redpoint. Did the same as Tom on the FA; pre-clipped third and downclimbed.
