This routes bloody hard - even for 7b; and it used to 7a+!

Perhaps it might be Fr7b for someone with no fingers, else its easy Fr7a

This is pretty much a four move boulder problem - a reachy rock-over into sharp, fingery holds. I thought V3ish so F7b is probably about right.

Broke the crux crimp. Sorry. It only crumbled a tiny bit and for a hold on any other route would be totally inconsequential, but there really wasn't much there to begin with - there was a crozzly thumb catch on top that as critical for me to hang the hold, that is now gone. Certainly harder for me now - I was quite close to doing the route, but can't hold the crimp in its current state.
