Rockfax Description
A harder, right-hand start to The Meltdown. From the base of the pillar, climb the roof to meet The Meltdown at its mid-point. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Climb the roof as per Tarantula but gain the lip a move earlier via a cross off a pocket onto a flake and a hard cutloose.

Standing start avoiding the plinth. Joined the Meltdown a bit further along than previously. No difference in grade.

Standing start this time, avoiding the plinth. Fewer moves but harder to get set up for the move to the lip.

Think we had the right line (looked to be the same as in videos). Definitely more than a plus-grade harder than The Meltdown but that says more about the grade of the latter.

Both bouldering guides give this went in a session though so 7B would seem fair.

It felt nails! The description is pretty vague so I'm not entirely sure I've done it right.
