Easy to make a mistake after the crux if you're rushing - but classic route!

Velociraptor is a kickass route that climbs through an interesting blocky section, with the crux mid-way up the route. It throws you a little moving from bomber jug holds to very small sidepull crimpers to get through the crux, and the climbing is sustained to the top. Easy to make a mistake after the crux if you're rushing - but classic route!

This is a classic 7a in Umgeni Valley, South Africa. Climbing on hard orange sandstone set high above a game reserve, one has to move delicately across a face with slopers and small crimpers to reach a solid mid-route rest. The crux is near the top, involving a rather reachy move for short people with smeary feet, and has a led out last bolt - but the fall is very clean. Absolute heart in mouth climbing at the top, even if this grade is easy for you. Exceptionally scenic open-air route!
