UKC Logbook Description
Starting the same as Sonic Blue but going straight up to the flake / sidepull missing out the finger lock. Finish out right.

βeta: Finally managed to get a third ascent of the original eliminate line! For a greater discussion please see my video: https://youtu.be/PmRPlrfhldk I am very happy/confident to propose an upgrade to 7C+/V10 for the original! And endorse a soft 7C/V9 for Falsis. Mad props to Ian Stronghill and Louis Parks for getting the first and second ascents of this

βeta: I believe all logs below 20+ used the pocket (below the jug) and took the grade for it, feels bottom end but about right to me. The FA was done without it feels much harder in my opinion probably why it has two accents to my knowledge. Basically phasis with or without pocket follows the same line and now uses the same name. Whatever method you achieve you've sent a hard block. Enjoy!

βeta: can we bring some attention to the elephant in the room with the beta for this. the original beta of lh to the smile & rh to the vertical seam (eliminating the sonic blue pocket) feels 7c to me. the more common method of bumping rh smile to pocket felt more like 7b+ and I've seen people saying it should be a separate climb ie 'falsis'

βeta: Anyone saying this is soft probably used the eliminated crimp below the sidepull, try it without, i'm sure it wont feel so soft and you'll actually climb the proper grade!
