Technical face moves based around a very thin crack.

Why is this decribed as 'crack climbing'? There's a thin seam in places but it didn't seem useful for either hands or feet. Two bouldery sections of UK 6b preceded by good rests. (E4 6b)
I agree...CRACK??? nice climbing though with a hard move to get to the large layback flake, once there its all over with easy climbing to the LO.
It's all edges on either side of the crack, except for one good horizontal edge in the crack.
7B. I felt 3 english 6b moves which to me comes to about a good 7b.
Narrowly missed an onsight of this a few weeks ago; have returned and repointed it and think its a hard 7a but no more. There's only one hard move and there's plenty of footholds to use whilst doing it. A really good sequency face climb that deserves 2 stars.
If you get the sequence right there are no 6b moves. However, the easiest sequence was not the first I tried...
My first 7a! I took me three goes and some top roping to work out a sequence that would work for me. No idea whether this is hard or easy 7a, how would I know? I just feel happy I did it (on a rainy day). It is described as a hard start but the start is a lot easier than 'consomme' or 'brief encounter'.
Nice climb - tricky 7a but no harder
this route is no where near being fr7b, although given 7a+ in the new guide i think this is potentially generous, maybe it is but i would opt for a hard 7a! very good climbing, like one of the earlier comments suggested around the 'seam' no real crack climbing. powerfuly but ace start and just a bit tricky, the crux is like one move no more
Top end 7a for me. If you can do the move over the roof, go the extra mile and have a go at The Mouth Waters, which has a better and more technical upper half and IMO isn't much harder if you get it wired.
