10m. A delicate combination of intense smearing and frantic scratching topped off with a dynamic finish. Use the Wings of Unreason pocket for much-needed protection. A Direct Start and no runners make it more like E7 6c.

Did this a few years ago,it`s superb and safe, brilliant hard smearing the fall off the top move is good too. Has this been soloed? that`s impressive.

Yes, the usual suspect: Julian Lines, direct over the initial roof too.

If it now gets E6 with a side runner it must be E8 without, though I did watch a mate fall off the top move on wings on a solo attempt.
