The thin crack is harder than it looks and has great moves.

Way too hard for 7b. I onsighted Stealth and Cairn but couldn't even do the moves on this.

Fr7b+. No doubt about it.

I redpointed this and did Cairn on the same day. They are for sure 2 grades apart. Either solid 7a for Cairn and top end 7b for Ratline or 7a+ and 7b+. I would go for the former combination, I don't think Ratline is quite hard enough for 7b+ compared to the likes of Obsession as its short, not far off though!
