Rockfax Description
A good hard route. It follows a big 'S' shape up the wall around the small bulge requiring some big pulls on small sharp holds. It eases with height but not by much. © Rockfax

Finally, 7c in the bag! Good old tin of mackerels did the trick yet again.

working session, top half worked out ok, need to work out that section by the second bolt better. An 'experienced' climber there today said he'd done this in the 90s and there were quite a few more holds then!

Bolt-to-bolted once last year. Dogged once to sort sequences then fucked first RP when I put my foot on the wrong hold going for the pocket at the top. Went fine 2nd RP. the sequence out left is really, really good.

First 7c! First redpoint of the day, though not my fist session on it. Had quite cold fingers but managed to push on and clip the chains anyway.

Footwork essential. All moves sorted bar one trying to get my feet up. Brilliant sequence on the undercuts. First try of the grade

Great route! One move away from clipping the last bolt, so I'm keen to get back.

Tried this climb a month ago in 3 parts and couldn't link it, some long moves in between technical sections. Really pleased to link it today. Technical limestone wall with really cool moves, so one of my favourites.

Something of a contrast to The Prow at Raven Tor, which I had climbed earlier that day.

2nd go today, 3rd go in total. 4th 7c to date. Great short route, no big shakeouts.

Played about on this on a top rope between Cooley's red point attempts, way out of my league at the moment but managed to get every move and topped it out each time! Even lead the easy last bolt twice :-P

Put the clips in then had two redpoint burns, both failed on the undercut sequence, ran out of power. Felt tired today but should go next visit.

Pretty psyched by this. The top moves on undercuts looked impossible but I lead in in overlapping halves 1st RP. Psyched to return to it.
