Akram the Terrible*** 7a

Rockfax Description
Thin and reachy moves up the slab and wall. © ROCKFAX

UKC Logbook Description
Another superb route with very funny and dynamic moves. Great sequence consisting of three awkward obligatory long reaches; it will seems hard for shorties. Worth 3* like its neighbours.

Awesome route 3rd go. Techy bottom, pretty reachy and hard through the crux then fairly steady at top. Painfully sharp kneebar! Even with my first use of the pad...
Maddie - Lead RP - 18/Dec/14 with remus

Super cool nee bar before crux section, hnds off rest.

with an average reach this grade must be nearer to 6c, which in no way lowers its quality

Clean ground up having last climbed it 18 months before (when it was my first 7a). Excellent route.

Couldn't stick the move from the knee bar upwards. Shame as rest is brilliant climbing!

Quarryboy - Lead dog - 26/Oct/10 with UCR youth squad

If this is the route I think it is... Absolutely superb! Climb up a suprisingly tough slab to a some large pockets on a slightly overhanging wall. Make large spans through the crux to be rewarded by delicate face climbing to the chains.
