Relatively straight-forward climbing leads to a large ledge then step right and make big moves between good holds up the wall above. Don't blow the final fingery moves to the lower-off. Perhaps 7a if you clip the chain before grabbing.

Superb, just like a comp route. I failed twice on the last move, so I've got a good excuse to go back.

A grade harder than Ciao Vecio(6c), that has been upgraded to 6C+ in the current update.

I highly recommend the route AFTER the folks have moved the chains to a more appropriate location. The last 2 feet shouldn't spoil a route.

Great route. The last move is the crux on the on-sight, hence 7a. Once you've found the good hold out left the move is relatively easy when you go for the red-point. As you can guess I blew it first time up.

Took me 6 Times to be able to clip the chain from the poor left hand hold. Was worth it in the end. Probably 6b until the rest ledge then becomes exponentially harder with each move until the end.

Nice varied climbing and yes the last clip is very mean, why not have the chains a bit lower??
