Route Grade Votings
Total votes cast 55
Short and sharp. Boulder up to the jug then make a desperate move left. Finish more easily up and right to the ledge.
as for p.u.t.p harder if you re are not a boulderer. Who ever graded it 7c+ anyway? Its always been 8a and always will be an easy initiation to that grade
nice to see people voting for 8a, as it was my first 8a flash - keep the votes coming guys!
Just sneaks in as soft 8a!
This is going to be hard for people whose only 8a is this route but it ain't 8a. The start has now got easier since last year (big crimp out left) - definitely only 7c+.
New Resin Bolts. Bolts placed in such a way
the "big crimp out left" makes the start no easier.
The main difficulty with this climb is pulling left from the jug. A strong bouldery 7c+/8a climber is going to work out one of the ways to get to the jug, with or without the crimp out left. The left pull from the jug gets easier
the crux of the route is the pull out left harder for the short the start is v6
agree with simon, this is never 7c+, a nice initiation to 8a.
a hold has come off out to the left of the jug (not by me) so may now be harder, still goes though.(probably only effects the way taller people climb this part of the route!!)
Like Jim says the broken hold just means that the tall can't now lank through the crux and now have to do the hard move like everyone else. It makes no difference to everyone else
