The unlikely-looking bulges require a determined sequence of pulls on some unhelpful, but just sufficient, holds and pockets. © Rockfax

βeta: Definately 7b. Much harder than Countdown, Max to the Wall or Open Gate. Blind moves on not so helpful holds, powerful and balancy, with some long reaches. Very good climbing, which feels bold given the 3 bolts in its length.

βeta: Felt like 7b to me. Feels harder than any of the 7a+s I've done in Cheedale.

βeta: Not sure how this has got to be 7b in the book. There are plenty of harder 7a+'s than this. Grade creep in action.

βeta: So when and why was this downgraded from 7b? Solid 7b with distinct bouldery crux which is too hard to be 7a+! Lost a star aswell since Northern Limestone was published?

Haydn Jones 17 Apr, 2017 Lead RP Uterly uterly desperate. I'm sure i was on the wrong line as i didn't use any pockets on this... I'm so sure this is the line i did though. Felt more 7c+ than 7b though...

Andrew Barker 8 Jun, 2007 Lead RP I think this is 7b, certainly felt harder than either of the 7a+ routes I've done. Finishing direct using the poor two-finger pocket is hard.
