Owen Hayward has returned to the small but perfectly formed Far Side block at Porth Ysgo and succeeded on a further good problem.

Black Streak 7B climbs the wall between The Far Side and School for the Gifted up the line of a thin black drainage streak.

Sit start directly under the streak with feet on the big block underneath and a choice of poor holds on the sloping shelf. Lock hard to gain the frustratingly high slopey crimp just right of the streak (morpho). Use this and the low side pull/undercut out left to rearrange feet and snatch the top.

Owen commented that he thought it might only be “7A+ for the tall”.
