The blank lower section seemed much harder than 7a unless the route traverses on to the front face before the break. The top half is almost as much fun as Turned to Stone

The sequence of moves across the crux lower wall is difficult to onsight as it is both very thin and the sequence must be difficult to onsight (I certainly failed in this respect)- for this reason the route should be 7a+. The second half of the route is delightful.

Easy flash (for 7a) if chalked. Must be a nightmare if it isn't, as the holds are small and would be very difficult to spot. Fine route though - the moves on the top half are great fun!

Superb climbing up natural line. Felt fine for 7a to me.

Blew the onsight with it unchalked, as I didn't spot the sequence. Did the moves after practice but found them reachy. Good route all the way.

thin and technical with a couple of blind moves on the crux. For the most part it's in balance and there's a couple of good rests - I thought it was a bit on the soft side

Sport climbs are not graded for the onsight and are graded for the easiest method. Therefore in general hard to work out routes for the easiest method are likely to be climbed as a redpoint if near the top of your lead grade. That's not to say onsights aren't respected as they are, they just aren't graded for.
