Power Pinch** f7A+ / V7
[Power Pinch, 2 kb]A traditional eliminate. Start with both hands on the break, rock on, and up to the 'Power Pinch'. Then up and right to finish at a distinctive pocket below the dirty ramp. Use of 'BS2' on Power Pinch makes it V7. © ROCKFAX
From the good starting edges power past the a side-pull and gaston (this used to be the power pinch) to finish at the edges above a sharp distinctive pocket. For the historical tick miss out the "X" hold (big flat edge up and left of the start), if you do use this it's 7aish.

Without the X hold (as its no longer there), found hard for 7a+. Thought more 7b, or I could just be weak.
