Hard and fingery wall-climbing that is at the top of the grade. Start just right of the diagonal crack of Chepito.
20m. Take the wall to the break and the high first bolt. Make some fingery moves to larger holds and then climb with increasing difficulty to a final easing on the top wall.

Locals told me a hold came off and Ian Vickers failed to onsight it? General consensus was 7c...? IMHO it did feel harder than any other 7b+ I've done!

Went on 4th attempt, found other 7b+'s harder. fine to half way then 3-4 hard moves and it is over.
