Once you can find and trust the left foot hold it is quite simple. Not 7a+ and easier that Dry Wit in a Wet Country. Have since repeat flashed it and can confirm it is quite easy. Not even sure it is 7a now.....

Crimp is really crumbly. Good problem though.

Wouldn't have even looked at this if it weren't for the (hilarious) guys on it. Fun and worthwhile consolation for giving up on dry wit

Chuffed to get this. Worth taping up heel of the left hand. Foot block flexes but I dont think its going to go in my lifetime. Crimp is sandy and worn

Not too hard and not too grizzly if you do it quick.

Did it again without the high right hand crimp. Guppied and pinched the arete. Great move and more like 7a+ this way.

3rd go today after a short session a couple of years ago. Rh crimp beginning to crumble, needs care especially with feet when traversing off.

The bit after the break was green, scrittley, damp and scary but good fun! I did think I should have looked at the condition of the top-out before getting committed to it!
