Rockfax Description
This micro-route starts halfway down the descent. Don't be deceived by its length; it packs a lot in. Low in the grade. © Rockfax

βeta: Very easy for 7a, flashed it. I found the 6c next to it much harder.

βeta: done this route yesterday and pulled a large lump out, dont think it has changed the grade much, but the bit underneath is going to go soon and that will change the grade.

βeta: Reachy or dynamic move is the crux after 3rd clip. Can't be 6b as was onsighting 6b this weekend. Got to be at least 6c. I'd go for 6c+...

βeta: I flashed this after watching someone else climb it - felt like 6c at the most.

βeta: Probably climbed this route in the region of 25 times now but I wouldn't say I find it any easier. Fall off it twice a week without fail. The good holds can lead you too far right and way too many moves off sequence, whereas the undercut method (direct over the bulge) saves valuable time and energy. I'd say solid 6c+, but 7a if onsighting is your cup of tea.

βeta: Would agree with ben1 ... 7a to onsight, easier to redpoint.
