Not sure what's going on with the voting - this is stiff f5+, maybe soft 6A at a push.

Guidebook grade of 7a is a mile off unless there are rules to what's in and what's not. Nice 6a though.

Better if a bit colder maybe. Have confidence in left foot hold. Smear up to the top. Should go with a couple more attempts and slightly less raw fingertips.

Lots of body tension to stick the left foot, then pop for the top

Had to rock over onto a high right foot and do a quick flick to reach the top. Tricky if you can't reach from the good left foot!

What I did was described as v2 in the guidebook and that felt about right. Not sure what the v4 version would be but it wasn't what I did.

James rogers86 10/Jun/15 Sent

Didn't think the good foot at the start was in so tried it both ways but all the videos I've watched use the good foot so I guess it's in.

A nice easy tick if you can pop for the top and maybe a nice tech problem for those who can't.
