Rockfax Description
A now redefined as a more direct version of the previous incarnation which no longer uses the higher right hand hold found on Phasis but instead utilises holds directly above and uses the foot ledge out left making it a more independent problem up the centre of the face. The problem can still be done in its original form at the same grade. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
On the Tobacco Wall. Start as for 'Phasis', but move up left to a left hand finger lock before powering up to a right hand sidepull. Finish on the large flat jug.

Direct info
A direct variation of the classic 7B. Start with the same sit start and move up to take the finger lock with your right hand (instead of the left). Use poor intermediates to move up to the same finishing jug as Sonic Blue.
