The hardest of the set has a very taxing middle section using crimps and side pulls.

Reachy move on the crux, hence everyone else thinks its 7c and I think 7c+!!

at 5footnine, its 7c for me at a stretch

There is no doubt that this route is significantly harder for shorter climbers, however I would say that
this is middle of the road 7c for the majority. How did it ever get to be given 7c+ in the first place? It
was 7b+ in the 1991 Peak Supplement!

I am a shorty and I avoided the move beacause I was only getting it 20 -30% of the time. InsteadI went straight up from the jug to the slopey "break" via crimps & sidepulls. I think this is only 7c by this method

7c whether you're tall or short due to it's sustained nature
