Good technical climbing, although the sequence takes a bit of unlocking. Low in the grade.

7A I DONT THINK SO MORE LIKE 6C
RICHARD SIMPSON - 22/Feb/01

Seemed tricky to onsight, yet much easier subsequently.

Annoyingly reachy for shorties! Aaaahhh!!!!!
John Fowler - 29/Nov/01

7a, but only just
Steve Golley - 24/Mar/02

Seemed closer in grade to Wind in the Rigging than the grades would suggest. Nice route though the move to reach the lower off
was off a loose undercling -- be careful.

Nice route, but the top is awful.
James Thackray - 05/Jun/02

easier than that 6b+ (no man is an island?!)
andy - 29/Sep/02

much much easier when you know which and where the decent holds are, then the moves are fine. Wouldn't have liked to onsight this one.

Tricky moves and technical, and it helps if you have skinny fingers,I haven't, so I give it 7A.
Glen - 11/Jan/04

although this has been downgraded in the new guide i still feel that it only just but does warrant the grade of 7a! though you shouldn't be worried about that, some great climbing with a last move that may keep you guessing! feels bold to the lower off especially if the ledge is dirty
