A tremendous find that, when in condition, has both excellent rock and pumpy climbing. From the belay blast direct up the leaning rib on some weird flowstone holds.

is this the route directly to the right of Go with the Flow? i.e. starting on the same ledge but a few feet further to the right?
if so, is it really 7b???

No - it's a newie called "Ocean Rock", 6c+. Aeroforce is quite a long way to the right, with a very different approach.

What did you think of it?

i thought it was very good & with excellent rock. though deceptively hard compared to go with the flow (when i looked across at it from that route i thought it looked about the same grade). the crux reachy moves fairly low down foxed me at first, after that it was a case of 'racing' for the top.
6c+ is about as hard as i can climb so it must be about right!

I agree, not 7b. If it was I wouldn't get off the floor! 6c+ felt about right, realy struggled through the middle section on a top rope but a great route. May be leading it one day!!!

Ian and Neil - you're commenting about the wrong route. You're after <a href="">

Oops. That didn't work then!
What I was trying to say was that you should be commenting on Ocean Rock 6c+, not this route.
