Exciting situations combined with technical climbing. Climb up and stretch past the low roof. Continue up the sustained wall to a blanker section of rock. Clip a high bolt, then traverse left on finger pockets before rocking up into a small corner. A final balancy wall and roof round off this great pitch.

I thought routes were graded for an onsight ascent! Felt like 7b too!

Worth 7b onsight, pumped to buggery, and what a fluttery clip if you're under 6ft (which I am) just climb past it that's the best thing I reckon. 3 1/2 *

Unfortunately sport routes are graded for the easiest method.

7b of anyones money!

Superb climbing but seemed a lot harder than say Rhyme Intrinseca and pretty scary without a long draw pre-placed on the bolt above the pockets.
7b to me too.

Tried five different starred 7a+ routes on Portland last week and this was definitely the hardest but also one of the best. Clip/move sequence hard to read, and gave me strained fingers on those pockets!

Hard to read crux because the bolt is too high, making you assume the line goes direct up the groove. I'm 5.9 and the crux is clipping the bolt. Great climbing, move the bolt.
