George_Surf 2 Mar Lead Technically flash, but it was an onsight. Felt hard; 7a for me for sure! Hungover. Thought I was coming off both cruxes, the top one is slightly harder? Full sun, chunky climbing

George_Surf 16 Dec, 2017 Lead dog This felt pretty brutal. Went too far left first time and ended up on the other route. The first sustained crux is hard and bouldery which finishes in a slap/dyno for the ledge and a rest. The next crux is also hard, and difficult to read with chalked up holds all over the place, found staying right was the way. The good chalked edges lead to A dead end! Difficult to onsight, bouldery cruxs, would get it with a second go. Arms were wrecked

climberchristy 30 May, 2017 Lead rpt Did this as a repeat in afternoon shade just to get some routes ticked having had an abortive and tiring try at Tirade at Los Pinos this am (far too muggy to get near it!). Great route. Still think it deserves 7a.

climberchristy 26 Jul, 2013 Lead rpt Glad to lead this clean after trying it at Easter. Great route. I still think it's hard for 6c+ which Alan James has brought it down to in his new Rockfax edition. I can think of several routes given 7a in the same guide book that are easier e.g. Akram the Terrible, Busaba and Alegria de Vivir (all at Alcalali)
