An excellent varied climb with a memorable finish. Pull onto the wall from the left and move up to undercuts and side-pulls, from where a reach gains a crimp. Move up to the flake system above and follow it rightwards (peg) to enter the niche beneath the capping roof. Pull straight out over the roof to the lower-off.
Gnarly and fingery, great finishing moves
Crucial hold broken at the start - feels way harder now - 7c/+ possibly for first 3 clips alone? Interested to hear what others think about this one...
Had a look at this today, the old way of doing it is well hard now. Managed to start it further left though considerably harder and more moves but quite good probably hard 7c. The first bolt seems to be in completely the wrong place now, another start is possible from the right on some small sharp crimps. I may look at moing the first bolt over slightly ?? an maybe putting one to the right for an alternative start. Any thoughts ??
Phew! I'm glad it wasn't just me going crazy! I tried it again last week and thought the same - i managed the original method but it felt loads harder than El Rincon, Rivals, Elite etc... Moving the bolt or gluing on a small edge where the hold used to be would do the trick alright.
The start still goes the old way but the first bit could now be the crux. Broken dreams is probably hard 7c now but still just as good if not better :)
A good finish.Broken Flowers 7c+ go left near the top on undercuts to finish up Flowers are for the dead.
