Fool's Bolt >>
Climb delicately past a hidden nut-slot (now a finger hold) to reach a square layaway/undercut. Make a huge reach or improvise to grasp a hidden jug and move up to a rest. The steepening wall above leads to a couple of tricky finishing moves.

First 7a. Tears of joy.

One day, maybe. Had several goes on it trying all the moves on the route, and reckon I could get up to the crux when fresh. The crux long-reach from the side-pull is beyond me at present, though.

Too wet to link all the moves though the crux will require work even on a dry day I reckon.

Onsighted the crux past the first three bolts... then went left instead of right to the wrong lower off & missed out the top groove. Doh!
