Climb Slingshot but continue up the wall above and right. There is gear at the halfway ledge and some small wires above to protect the upper wall which is rumoured to be 'only 6c'.

Undoubteabley E10 since the top is about F7c/7c+ to TR and runners are shit. Spoilt by rest on the ledge after slingshot otherwise would be a classic.

Just wondering, if Slingshot is the technical crux and the route is easier above and slingshot is given 7a why is the route 7b or did Adrian Berry think slingshot is 7b???

Indeed, if Slingshot is 7a - which it probably is - then the route is 7a not 7b. At the time I climbed it, Slingshot was given 7b - as that was what Jerry Moffatt graded it, and I didn't have enough experience at the grade to argue.
