A superb pitch. Sustained and delicate climbing with a strenny finish.

Very good technical climbing...good to do near the end of a mileage day.

brilliant route, but reach dependent move between huge jugs at lip of overhang

a much better route than medusa falls; longer, more involved moves and generally more enjoyable. if medusa is worth 3 stars then so is this!

I agree, a much better route than Medusa Falls, sensible technical climbing, cant understand the reach dependent comment? You must have missed something?

Superb climbing, and well protected, but if Medusab is 7A then this is 7A+

Very good technical route, and much better than Medussa falls. Cool finishing moves from jug aswell.

Really lovely fingery crux. Loads of nice rests. Big move off jugs to jugs at the top. 3 stars.

Excellent climbing, at lower end of the grade, possibly 6c+. Fair bit easier than The Oldest Profession.

one of the best 7as on portland! i wouldnt say 'soft' but not half as hard as some others you will find on the island! amazing climbing, including pockets, grooves, bit of steep and slab what more can you ask for? this is a very enjoyable route! a good contender for a first 7a

Super climbing, crisp holds and a bit thuggy near the top. Easier than some Battleship 6cs and 6c+s - or are they just undergraded??
