went smooth first go today after working it out last week. Great varied climb overall, feels highish in grade.

4,5,6,7 TR . working.
psborland - 04/Oct/15 with Nick

burly through that middle section and the polished feet makes it more like 7b. Worked it out but too tired to clean. Prob the best of those i've done on this wall

quick play on toprope solo whilst other stuff was busy - great route actually, quite burly after the break and felt more like 7b. Will have to come back to lead.

Desperately hard! top wall isn't trivial, if it weren't for the reasonable mid height rest it would surely be about 7b+!

Great climbing, best route I've done on the embankment. Really pleased to get it first rp at the end of the day after one top rope. Slab not too bad, flake pumpy but not over til you rock over onto the slab.

By the law of averages alone, you would think I would have onsighted a 7 by now. Still, an infinite number of monkeys and an infinite number of typewriters....

fell off the final hard move on the onsight

Harriet Rebecca Hall - Lead β - 23/Aug/14

Fell on the onsight, then fluffed 1st redpoint at the crux and 2nd RP pulling over the bulge as I forgot what I was doing. Defo hard for 7a+?

One go to work out the moves then went for the redpoint but unfortunately dropped it on the crux. Little too tired I think so hopefully it'll go next time.

I suspected that I would find this harder than Beef It and I did... Got pumped trying to figure out the crux sequence. Took a few goes to sort it out - from undercut/sidepull with R reach through with L to a sidepull, then reach up with R to the good sidepull by the bolt. Had to have a couple of rests on that bolt as well as didn't figure out the move over the final bulge straight away. Need Brian's route reading ability!
