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

Tricky crux, feel like it would have gone if I'd had another go but then it rained and got wet.

Followed a friend up this climb, OK once you know where to go.
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+?

justin c - 28/Apr/14 with steph crowley

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.

2nd go, fell off just before last clip on first.

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!
