Ibex M7
[Drytooling route in the quarries, 2 kb]20m. A good sustained route with fun moves and a crux near the top, though maybe not the easy warm-up route its builders intended it to be. The route is on the back wall, just right of the tunnel. Start next to the boulder - there may be a Quarryman's clip-stick in place for the first bolt. Monopoints and jug-handle tools pretty much mandatory, or take the M10 tick for a 'Vertiges with homemade leashes and dual-point crampons' ascent.

Felt hard! Maybe I'm just weak and fat after christmas...Certainly felt significantly harder than the warm up!

We didnt have a clip-stick and couldnt make one, so I climbed up to the first bolt, clipped it, rapidly descended to the ground and then led it, so I guess I had 'beta' for the route. Easily onsightable, a cool route. Led then 2 laps.
