Probably soft for 7a but a couple of tricky crux sections. Top half of route is prob only 6b.

Good route that isn't quite over after the obvious crux.

2nd go, 1st rp. Crux didn't feel too bad. Plenty of rests.

Quick play then 1st RP. Seemed damn soft

Bit too squeezed in and lacks a decent line. My partner climbed the crux section a little to the L of the 4th bolt making it probably less than 7a. Unsure of which belay to use so chose the RH one.

Technical crux around the fourth bolt, but not too bad once the sequence is figured. Should have sent it second go but made a mistake. First 7a

Absolutely desperate, must've been doing it wrong but the sequence was everything. Took nasty fall onto ledge, could really do with another bolt. Aided/yarded at several points.

Crux tougher for the short, easy climbing generally. enjoyed the route.

First effort at redpointing, took three top rope sessions, then got it first lead attempt. Seemed soft compared to the few other F7a ive been on. Now to find a F7b to work....

Nick Allen 18/Aug/12 Lead RP

Hidden side pull in crux, don't miss it or you're off.

leon 26/May/12 Lead rpt

Went pretty easy when I FINALLY got the sequence right.

with John Taylor
leon 22/May/12 Lead dog

So now I know why the crux felt so much easier last year. I've been doing it all wrong this year. Felt easy the right way. Ran out of time to try for the RP.

leon 13/May/12 Lead dnf

This is starting to get embarrassing. So almost there. Now falling from the final move on the crux. Can get through OK on TR but its too tenuous on lead. Need to man up or work a better foot placement.

with Steven Davidson
leon 28/Apr/12 Lead dnf

1st RP attempt. No practice since last year so sketchy on the moves. Felt good up to and including the getting the right side pull @ the crux. Struggling to sort my feet for the next 2 moves meaning they feel precarious. Rest of the route fine. Next time???

with Steven Davidson
philhilo 31/Mar/12 Lead dog

Did the move eventually but could not repeat on the way down, so didn't bother with the redpoint. Mighty wobbly move above the crux. Will have another go.

leon 25/Sep/11 TR dog

Only time for one TR go. Found the moves OK bu kept missed the hidden hold on the crux. Went down, back-up, still couldn't remember where it was.

with Steven Davidson
leon 10/Sep/11 TR dog

Managed to work all the moves, eventually. Now need at least one flash on TR before I go for my first RP 7a.

One hard moved that I couldn't do. Quite reachy would need to try a different approach.
