Hard 7b in my opinion

pymn nice but dim ??/2016 Lead RP

Disproportional climb easy to hard to easy. Unpleasant bouldery moves.

3rd tie in - fastest 7c yet. Probably a bit soft but it's definitely worth more than 7b!

Sharp boulder problem. Hard to grade but much easier than crucifix kiss.. 7b would seem harsh though. Broke a hold, but nothing vital.

Putting the draws in too. ~7b/+, nice moves but a bit short-lived.

1st RP attempt, however I worked all the moves on top rope twice before. Not sure about the grade. Rockfax says 7c, but it didn't feel much harder then other 7b's I've done (only 2). I would give it hard 7b or maybe 7b+, but due to lack of experience in these grades, I may be wrong.Also, I needed to make few more moves then my mate who is taller. Perhaps it is slightly more cruxy for shorties.

Third go after a silly fall on the second. Easy until a short bouldery crux. I'd love to take this as my first 7c but it went much easier than Zinc Oxide Mountain for me. Gonna have to grade it hard 7b+ (but not as hard as ZOM :). Still chuffed. UPDATE: after further consideration I don't think this can even get 7b+. It went faster than some hard 7bs I've climbed, perhaps my style, perhaps a good day, yadda yadda, but I think it's hard 7b max.

Good crux moves, though quite sharp

6b+ route to a sharp vert V5 boulder problem.
