Nice route, the moves are very consistent all the way up. Feet quite polished in some places. Hard for a 7a compared to other crags.

Quickly tied on for a a quick insight burn straight after sturgeon in attempt to get some fitness. Found it really hard passing 2nd bolt? What a chopper

This is harder than Hungry Eyes which gets 7a+, and almost as hard as Mind of a Turbot. Had 1 o/s attempt then worked moves, then 1 rp attempt and 1 tr and it felt pretty hard for 7a.

Did fairly well on the attempted on-sight, fell off twice, but got back on almost straight away. Think it would go fairly easyily if I got on it again.
