Very technical and sequency climbing up an old bolt-ladder. Loss of a crucial hold has upped the grade.

Now harder that a crucial crimp has been snapped off, Tragic! Must be somewhere in the 8's now.

When did the crimp come off and which crimp was it.

Yeah come on Chris D, which crimp and when? Has it had a repeat since?

The crimp which you use to cross through and get the good hold (which you clip 2nd bolt off). Not sure if its been repeated.

Defo 8a now. Did it in '05. Felt hard

Went on Tribes on Saturday 28th June 2008. Due to the snapped off hold referred to, the rock-over to the right below the glued flat hold is now extremely hard.

So hard it disrupts the flow of those bottom crux moves. I was climbing with someone who has ticked all the Kudos wall boulder problems up to 8a+ and we both got shut down, though he did manage the move.

Did this last night. Rockover is Font 7b I thought or thereabouts going again with RH to glued edge off scar where broken hold used to be with right foot in the break. I'd agree with 8a but not harder as this is the only bit that has changed.
