George_Surf 5 Feb, 2018 Lead dog Really nice wall climbing to the crux then it’s suddenly hard! I managed to stand up through the powerful undercuts and use the arête to the right to move up past the bolt. Who knows if you go right/Direct/left but there is a big pocket 1 foot left of the bolt. Above is crimpy but easier, full traverse left to the chains? Cramped and shame about the crux

shaunhumphreys 24 Jan, 2017 Lead dog Tough crux which is a bit shit and there are bolts everywhere so it's hard to know where to go! Definitely not worthy of 3 stars! One of the worst routes of the grade I've tried in chorro

shed_hed 10 Mar, 2015 Lead O/S Fantastic route. Moves really flowed nicely, sometimes not even being able to see the next hold until I was already on it having done the move before and just had to trust the flow of the route. Noticed that I was moving very close to the other routes despite being next to the bolts. Felt hard for 7a.
