backed of 2 bolts from the top (i think). despite the rockfax stating that the route finished at 28m it actually takes the full length of the crag, well over 50m pitch. appartently its 7a+ to the first anchor, 7b to the top?

Watched a chap on it so can't claim full onsight. Shame its not a bit more sustained or balanced rather then boulder problem bivi ledge boulder problem.

Fell off right at the top on flash! Too many other routes to do in Chorro, so didn't RP but good to know that 7b walls are good flash targets.
