The first of the modern routes in the Hollywood Bowl is one of its best. Climb the low tufa and move up left to the edge of the Bowl before making some steep pulls to reach the hanging rail/flake. From the hanging rail pull leftwards to finish. Low in the grade.

Yes 7b+

good diverse pitch, 7b+ and a bit easier than Illywhacker
Mark Glaister - 23/Jun/03

A great route with a tricky last clip, 7b+
Lee Proctor - 01/Aug/03

So is this route's consensus 7b+? Just wondering as the Northern Limestone and Yorkshire limestone guidebook both has this down as 7c
KO - 06/Jun/07

I reckon if you sit on ledge halfway its 7b+, if you plough on through its 7c.
Adam Lincoln - 06/Jun/07

Certainly felt worth of 7c to me. Two burly cruxes.

This is easier than Illywacker so I would say 7b+
