Rockfax Description
A difficult lower wall leads leftwards to the break. Climb the wall above to a jug then move right and up on good holds to an easing. Follow the rib/groove to the lower-off. © Rockfax

βeta: The hold to clip the 5th bolt has gone. This means you need a long reach to clip it from below, climb past it or use a preplaced long quickdraw. The route is probably slightly harder. The harder move (6a/b?) is compensated by fewer moves so I don't think it adds that much and the route is less sustained than the 7a+'s here. So around a hard 7a now. A bolt needs moving: either the 5th bolt lower or maybe better is to make the 4th bolt a good bit higher, above the jug rail. Removed the brambles above the 5th and brushed off the ledge but probably needs regular pruning.

βeta: The bolts in the upper half seem to be placed in rock I wouldn’t even want to pull on. I would label this as very dangerous.
