βeta: Have soloed this myself. The move to the top bolts is a bit scary since I was putting my foot in the top break as a jam. But the true crux is below this getting the break from the little finger mono in the flow!!

βeta: There are, and only ever have been, 2 bolts up to the lower-off! It's a bit scary, but easier than the meat of the route.

βeta: Yes this is hard for 7a however it is so short, what do you expect! However it is a bit of a finger tip shreader, best do it first go!

βeta: 6c+ max. Worked this several years ago. Once you figure the sequence it's a doddle. Even the top section is easy once you figure it out. And don't cheat like the dude in the photo.

βeta: Good fun little problem. It's got holds, but they're rather small and will rip your fingers to shreds if you're not careful.

DrGav 30 Aug, 2009 Lead dog Eventually pieced together a sequence, going from the mid-way good left crimp direct for the right pinch near the top, with a tug on an intermediary and careful foot adjustments. 7a+? Will redpoint. Very challenging to unlock!
