Messiah** 7c+
[Bad feet..., 3 kb]12m. The thin crack on the left side of the wall gives an excellent sustained struggle. Start as The King and swing left into the crack. It usually seeps from the bottom of the crack but this doesn’t affect the holds.

First session on it in over 3 years as I first tried it on a shunt when I was fresh to climbing and couldn't do a move on it! Did all the moves today, but poor skin, lack of fitness and too much running I think, meant I was falling going to the finger slot. Brilliant route, definitely not what I'm good at, so totally psyched to get back on! Is it 8a now with the broken hold? Who knows.

Underestimated this route I feel :-) now pulled off a jug that was crucial to the way I did first crux. Had to work a new sequence
