James Oswald 25 Nov, 2017 Lead dog Definitely the hardest route I tried all trip. Tricky lower wall, pumpy section to a good rest and then a desperate boulder problem crux. Peak limestone 7b+? Great crux moves but hard!

mishabruml 1 May, 2017 Lead RP Brilliant route, crux felt so desperate until I got the beta sorted then it all came fairly smooth. Used the pocket in the crack and then the side pulls out right. one of the routes I really wanted to get before leaving chorro, next up honk down!

mishabruml 3 Apr, 2017 Lead dog Thought I blew my chance at first 7b onsight by dropping it at the middle of the crux on the 1st go. Then hung around on the draw for 45 mins failing to work it out... psyched to get back on it with some stolen beta mwahaha

Rockmonkey1977 13 Jan, 2017 Lead RP As fun and rewarding as it was to send this, it really is bouldering on a rope with the majority of the route feeling a little pointless. My beta for crux was: left hand to undercling, high feet and take the pocket in the crack with the right. Move feet and take higher crimpy hold with left hand. Sort feet and take higher right side pull crimp (right hand), move feet again (i think..) then throw for the pocket at the back of the slot with left hand. Move left foot up to bottom of slot then semi-throw for the jug.

KKilroy 9 Apr, 2016 Lead dog Cudnt decide what to do on the setup for the crux as a million tiny holds were chalked and ticked. Sat on the draw and had a good look and then climbed thru on first attempt from the jugs. Extremely blind but good climbing. Contrary to all the comments on this one the crux is not super fingery but super blind. Find the good hold and ur in!

JBO 20 Feb, 2014 Lead O/S Hard crux! Nearly came off before I noticed the holds out right, BIG slap to the jug after the crack. Trick was to use the holds in the crack as little as possible!

mr_nsglover 11 Sep, 2013 Lead RP Went 3rd go. Should have been 2nd go but for some unnecessary foot faf mid crux. The single hardest sequence of moves on the trip. 7 moves of V5 on top of 6b climbing followed by 5+ to the top. Excellent route. Did it 3 more times on the trip to put up and retrieve draws for friends.

felixthelion 2 Jan, 2012 Lead RP Although the start and finish are easy the crux is desperate. feels harder than 7b and as hard or harder than some of the 7b+ routes on the same crag. Fantastic line and very enjoyable climbing.

skygodley 1 Jan, 2009 Lead RP Akira has a tough move at the start to get you past the first clip then it gets really easy, so easy in fact you can get fully recovered for the crux which is much much harder! The real crux is getting through a scoop-crack on tiny two finger holds, it‘s steep and powerful but the top tip is when it gets really hard; look right! I think Akira only gets 7b because of the jug pulling before and after the crux. A great climb.
