I went out the other day and tried to climb a climb that is supposed to be there. I've never seen anyone complete it and I'm still working on it.
Its a V7 called Black Widow.
There are new holds, it looks like someone is chipping, because it made some hard moves into cake, the moves themselves used to be V5-V6 range but now they are V1-V2 range. Please keep an eye out for this, this climb is currently on my project list and it is really hard to see a project of mine become that much easier.
