Last Minute (Kom Ombo)** 7a
36m. The wall left of the corner. © ROCKFAX
So called because we were told about it at the 'last minute' before going to the printers - the correct name is 'Kom Ombo'. Unfortunately the information given to us was slightly out since the route is longer than stated in the guidebook at more like 36m.

Dibdawg - Lead - 30/Jan/14 with Phil Mitchel

Went the 7a way from flake. Route is much longer than in guidebook.
Bristoldave - Lead O/S - 17/Jan/14 with Caroline

Nice technical lower wall. Went indirect to right at flake ( bold but very we'll chalked) as direct didn't look like good warm up.

Hidden - Lead O/S - 27/Dec/12

Nearly fucking died thinking it was only 25m as the guide suggests! Luckily a kind pole tied a knot in our rope..
cliffrad - Lead O/S - 19/Dec/12 with Charlotte Garden

Hidden - Lead O/S - 16/Dec/12

ran out of draws so had to dog up it. shame as a pretty good route if you ignore the nails crux. someone suggested that the line past the flake may actually be a new route and 'last minute' be to the left. dunno.

This is actually a climb called Kom Ombo which is 36 metres long and nearer to 7b if done direct. Exposed 6c+ if following the group. There is no lower off at 24 metres. Make sure you have a long enough rope to lower off.

dswansonlow - Lead O/S - 23/Jun/10 with Eugene Theron, jacob loyd

Had to TR due to complications... went up the 8a+ by mistake and needed to retreive the draws with complicated ropework!
jacobjlloyd - TR O/S - 09/Jun/10 with Eugene

Was so good the first time I did it again! Not sustained really, crimpy crux at the bottom. A tad soft.
jacobjlloyd - Lead rpt - 09/Jun/10 with Eugene

fell off the first move but did the rest o/s. Not very hard for 7a at all.....

sam820 - Lead dnf - 04/Apr/10 with Robin Jones

Not 24m, nearly 44m. A big pitch ranit out missing 2 bolts, and then threading the lower-off with my arm around the chain, exhilerating. Crux involves some really thin moves off a small ledge unless 5' 11"+.
Alex Mason - Lead O/S - 01/Apr/10 with Matilda

Is not 24m long (nearer 38m) and def not 7a if done direct.
