classic so thought i would try it, harder than the 7a to the left and crux tricky to work out for the shorties

Loved it. Bit like a gym route realy, as so chalky. Fell off on top crux.

Definitely harder for the short. Had to smear and dyno for a 2 finger pocket and you are away above your last bolt! A bit mental and took an age to get that sequence wired. Really easy climbing to the crux.

Very hard crux if you're short. Had to do some horrendous alternative sequence!

Fell at the crux as I went too far left and had got cold belaying in the wind at El pati (excuses!) Fairly steady to a crux at the top! Good climbing though!

Shizer! Brilliant route which can be seen from most places in the valley, drawing you in with the line of perma chalk up the fantastic orange face. Cruxed out, run out, big whipper.
