Rockfax Description
Extremely powerful climbing up the wall right of Darl with a thuggish crux. The initial wall is hard enough but at the bulge it really starts to pack a punch. © Rockfax

Boom! Thank God, loads of micro sessions. Finally it went steady today. Think the 7c+ given in BMC felt fair. Was harder than 7cs I've done. Cheers dave

Great to have got this done. Feels very hard for 7c, but then again it doesn't really suit my strengths. 7c+ seems far more reasonable

Close, but no cigar - one move away from success before it got dark

Was sure it'd go this time but ended up dropping the last hard move four times!

Andrew Barker 21/Apr/11 Lead dnf

Dropped the last hard move twice!

In two parts. Brutal moves to get onto the undercuts.
