Rockfax Description
Start below a large overhang with a staple bolt beneath it. Good moves through the overhang gain an awkward wall above. A very blind mid-section on slopers and poor holds feels precarious until the easier finishing moves. High in the grade. © Rockfax

βeta: This is a great route that is more technical than pumpy. I agree with Ian and reckon it's probably worth 7a+

βeta: Good climbing, as described the middle section is technical and difficult and it keeps going to the belay. Hard 7a or easy 7a+, possibly the one route on the wall that is worth the 7a+ grade.
