Route Grade Votings

The overhang-dotted corner is an excellent route with both technical and strenuous climbing. High in the grade.
Seems to have lost a hold between the two stepped roofs, not the balanced route it once was (or is it just me getting fatter?)
Tried this on Sunday. The crux feels rather hard for 7b and unfortunately I ripped hold off. [BETA WARNING] The flowstone r/h gastons in the 2nd roof (after the crux sequence) that help you stand up to reach the jug are now a lot thinner. For me this makes moving my feet up to reach the jug a bit more difficult. If it's any consolation I got a nice rope burn for my efforts!
Did this last weekend and worked out a different way of doing the crux. For me, the broken hold doesn't make the slightest difference to the grade. Still a solid 7b and very good at that.
Did this last year. Good route but a lot of faffing to find a workable sequence. Hard 7b for me.
Agreed Iain, the sequence is hard to work out but there is one there but some what awkward and not sure where the 3 stars came from...
