Got on this thinking it was alternative optional extra. Thought it was a bit stiff for 7a!

A confused attempt. Looks like there are two ways to go on this. Going R from the scoop is 7b+ and a pointless cop out. Or you can go straight up from the scoop (crux) to another bolt then R into Alternative Extra which is quite a lot harder and presumably what the 7c grade is for.

Stiff at 7b+. Does have some excellent climbing though.

Quality route but too hard for 7b+

Top rope, bolt to bolt lead, sent. Really good route and over at half height!

really very good and technical - tricky moves to get right in groove at 3rd bolt and then the crux to gain jugs at top of the groove. the end of AOE felt very pumpy after what youve done to get there. more 7c maybe? 1st go - sat on every bolt, took about 5 goes to gain tufa pocket then another 5 to get right and maybe another 5 to do top move. flogging a dead horse today? 2nd go - better but still very tired efforts. bailed out after grabbing the 1st draw on AOE. next time...
