βeta: Its the only 7b I ever got up in my life so I suspect its not really that grade. The shorties in our team complained a bit though, so maybe its height dependent?

nelg 13 Jun, 2010 TR dog The Start is powerful, some tricky moves up the flakes/arete. The crux move at the top, is to stand on a block type hold. To do this - from the good flake side pull on the left with left hand, right hand on the big block, reach up with the left to crimp a poor side pull, then step the right foot in close to the left foot, then move the left foot onto the high hold, with the toe on the hold, reach high to gain a good side pull, then pull really hard while push down hard onto the left foot, as you stand up, reach with right hand to a high right hand undercut. Reach to the right for a intermediate pinch for the right hand, then pop for the good jugs to finish. Watch the feet here, there are none, then just jug to the top on juggs, with no feet.
