Starting to work it! We got the moves just going to be very hard to climb through the crux. 21.6.16 Wasn't far from sending this today! 12.8.17 Damn so close to holding the linking move! Did it in 2 parts but too tired today. 16.8.17 I hope this doesn't become one of those climb. Did it in 2 parts 3 times with no problem. 20.8.17 Finally! What a great route.

My second 7b+. Last one was 11 years ago! Given the votes this one seems harder so my hardest ever probably. Whoop! Got it on the 2nd lead attempt. Ended up skipping a bolt as I found the rope was getting in the way.

If this is 7b+ all 7b+s on Portland should be downgraded.For me hardest 7b+.Climbed each time in bad weather.7c could be real.
