βeta: cold steal is too sustained for 7c+. 6c at the bottom and then a sustained 6b sequence up the headwall with a tough finish add up to 8a. Much harder than it's neighbor, Man with a gun which is also given 7c+.

thebigfriendlymoose 9 Aug, 2014 Lead RP 3rd session (first lead try of day). Bit of a shock - aim for the entire day was to lead to 3rd clip! Good route. Not really an eliminate - ineluctable after taking the poor RH crimp from the jugs. First half incredibly intense, ferocious crimping (fingers hurt all day afterwards). Second half a delightfully techy 7b/+.

Andy Farnell ?Jul, 2004 Lead RP Hardly a 'squeezed in eliminate'. A very independent line. F7c/7c+ to a brilliant rest, F7b+ headwall with sustained climbing on layaway's and pockets to a tough finish. Hard 8a IMHO
