ericinbristol 20 Apr Lead dog 2nd session on this after one session two years ago. Did all the moves on the 7b version. The 7b+ is marginally more direct but it is artificial to rule out the holds on the 7b version. I couldn't manage the long reach on 7b+ version.

joe1joe1joe2 17 Apr, 2017 Lead RP Third attempt. According to the UKC description we may have done the 7b variation. Either way what a great route! Don't be put off by the fact that it looks run out; it really isn't that bad. Also worth noting this is harder for the short (less than 5ft9 wingspan), I had to do a little dyno to a good jug where others could just reach up.
