βeta: Great route, not as ratty as i thought it would be, a real mixture of holds and a cool sequence... looks like it could have a few different sequnces on the crux.

βeta: Repeated by Steve McClure who thought it was 8b or 8b+, but also hard to grade.

βeta: I climbed the project to the left after stabilising a couple of friable holds with glue. Thought it was going to be desperate to start with, sort of font 8a crux, or 8b+ route when I tried it in the full sun, but it went disappointingly easily in cooler conditions. So I'm not sure of the grade, 8a/+/b? I've really no idea. Very cool moves though.

βeta: Glad to here it's OK to lower off at the break, I fell off when a hold broke going over the top, now I can get another 8a tick!
