I think this is a soft 7a or very hard 6c+.

7a in the guide, which is probably fair. Crux is clipping the second to last draw.. might be easier if the draws are in place! Great route though

Pumped at the top of the tufa and could not get to the jug.

JLS 21/Oct/15 Lead O/S

What ya mean it's not 7a on UKC!? Not entirely obvious which should be the best sequence through the blobs. Very possible to feel lost and still be on track.

One very hard move at the top right when you're pumped silly! Fell off then did second go. Harder for the short. For me harder than either Crisis or Ricounet.

Found this harder than Crisis, 7a, farther to the right. Beautiful route with a hard final tufa.
