Broccoli and Ice-Cream

A good route that is only marginally easier than Grand Canyon. Start just right of Devil's Haircut. A tricky initial 'slabby' pull is followed by a steep sequence of moves to reach good holds. Yard up jugs with a tricky pull through the mid height bulge to reach more jugs. Continue quickly, making a final energy-sapping move to reach the lower-off just beneath the roof. The extension is a project rumoured to be around 8b.

I've cleaned up this route. It's in good nick at the moment and certainly worth two stars. Probably 7b+ for the onsight.

What is the short project between Grand Canyon and Broccoli and Ice-cream? I'm assuming as the first two bolt hangers have been removed it's not an open project... Looks like it could continue into the 7b through the bulge

Climbed this on sat, think it was the only route climbable due to the seepage, is now clean and very worthwhile. two stars.
