hard finish into the short groove

Now with a better direct start - still 7a+ though.

Fantastic hand jamming through the first roof and then pumpy afterwards. Watch out for the mud disguised as holds near the top.

After trying a number of options to get established onto the upper face,I ran out of ideas. Do most people end up scrunging their up the R/H corner/groove and slapping their way out? or was I missing something..

Has something changed on route? Think that grade or route description needs re-assessing. Direct start much too hard for the grade, felt more like cruxy 7b+ish (although I'm too short to keep feet on good holds). Starting left (almost on Hangs like a Dead Man) and traversing the overlap in between first and second bolts much more in line with grade but isn't climbing the bulging groove.
