Case Adjourned** 7a

Rockfax Description
A great climb, again with a final scary run-out which may make it feel like an E5. After a fingery start, continue more easily to the break. Crank upwards to the final bolt, chalk your hands up and go - right has more holds but straight up has a good flake. © ROCKFAX

UKC Logbook Description
A great climb, no longer with a scary run-out. After a fingery start, continue more easily to the break. The headwall is sustained on crimps and flatties, where good footwork pays dividends. The final bolt is by a good flake to prepare for the finishing moves.

FA. Gary Gibson 1985. Gary also added the direct start in

Dogged to put clips in , one decent attempt on TR then not so good.
simon1965 - Lead dog - 27/Aug/15 with David Sherratt

A pumpy number, felt closer to 7a+ overall to me, maybe the mid height break let's it off. Really good second half though, tricky!
Nick Sherring - Lead RP - 17/Aug/15 with Tom Holdstock

Stupid foot pop lowdown. Lowered straight down and climbed to the top.

Good route, though not as good a Open Gate - is further right at the top the intention or not? Not straightforward either way and needs good footwork and endurance. Nice one.
Nick Sherring - Lead dog - 12/Jun/15 with Steve McClure

Draws in. Not nearly as good as Open Gate and felt about the same grade. Bit odd near the top- there are a lot of chalky holds on the right of the bolts, which the guide gives permission to use, but felt like the bolt was too far left.
spidermonkey09 - Lead O/S - 11/Jun/15 with Neil Howett

Been on before, second go on tr, fluffed redpoint worrying about a clip.

1 TR to work moves, 2 clean TRs then done 1st RP. Really good varied, technical climbing. 2nd 7a
Alex@home - Lead RP - 14/Aug/14 with Tony Moody

had a play a couple of weeks ago but too hot in the sun. lot better conditions this time and went fairly steadily once I had the sequence for the top wall. Still hard to get your arse off the ground though
Mick r - Lead RP - 13/Aug/14 with Dave L

Desperate start and technical head wall. I thought they were both as hard(open gate) as each other with this hard start - sort of balanced the grade. . Just not quite as sustained .. Good route

Done after 6 goes (on different days) bit of helpful beta at the top and i was done :D
jamesgodwin64 - Lead RP - 07/Jul/13 with John Copper

loved it but got it better first go than second and the top bit is right, make sure you've got something in the tank you'll need it, still a nice decent fall from the top nothing bad though :)

Just when I thought 7A was in my sights. Felt I could work the first two thirds but after that felt too tenuous. Still finished it but too much faff at top...

Hindsight. Tired. Came of once at start, z-clipped high up and traversed right for a rest at the tree.

The start is as hard as the crux on Tremelo!

hard for grade
Ian Broome - Lead dnf - 24/May/09 with Rich Wainwright

stepped right to a lower off and then realised it was the wrong one, however had i gone straight up i would have failed anyway, has this lost holds? looks desperate!
