A fine climb which would only be 7c if you didn't have to do the powerful start of That was the River. After the start follow the flakes above until a desperate sloper move gains the roof. Many stop here now due to loose holds above on the roof.

Bolts recently renewed up to the roof. The band of rock on the lip of the roof appears loose. Probably best to finish on the last bolt below the roof. This will not change grade if the last bolt is clipped from holds just under roof and not grabbed (do not understand the reference to crossing the roof being problematic - its not, just potentially loose).
