In heavy rain. Great route which keeps on going right until the end. The lower 2/3 were sheltered from the rain but really greasy, the top was wet and desperate! Only just managed to clip the chains.

Overall this felt much harder than the other 7a's on the trip, 4 attempts over 2 trips to get it. Excellent climb.

I thought this route was Nails, I'd put it around hard 7a+ or even soft 7b.

I love this line, getting the silhouette profile photo wth the lake in the background was the icing on the cake. Photo i on my desk at work and keeps me psyched. Failed on the on-site but was at the end of a long trip with little rest, feel that I could get this on first redpoint. returning October 2012 fr he send.

Biblical wind, one top rope, would like to get back on one day.

Seems to be controversial as to the grade. Beta alert: It is not sustained - there are two excellent rests to split it up nicely. The crux is simply a matter of technique. Jam and fingerlock and it is soft, with one or two powerful moves. If you don't I expect it would be stiff. A chance for trad climbers to enjoy an advantage perhaps! Stunning climbing.

First redpoint. First Chorro 7a - fairly low in the grade.

quite a few moves on crux section, then a pumpy finish.

So stupidly close, was really frustrated when I came off this, was so desperate to get it as my first 7a onsight! I felt I had the strength to do this but failed because I managed to wrong hand myself and didnt have ennough strength to correct myself

I was really glad that my girlfriend put the clips in on this route cos it was nails hard. Knowing that she on sighted it kept me on the route “last time I warm down on a 7a”
