Daylight Robbery** 7b

Rockfax Description
It looks unlikely at the grade but once you get on it the climbing is good and the moves are surprisingly independent. Start by heading towards the groove of Ra, then hang-a-left onto the steeper section above, where it is easy to get lost and take a whipper. A long move enables the upper wall to be reached, teeter up this to the lower-off. © ROCKFAX

FA. Chris Hardy 1989. The name refers to what happened to a sack of gear which was left at the bottom of the route.

Tried late on once out of the sun. No time for RP but really nice route. Getting the draw in bolt 4 proved tricky. Let Dave sort that out.

Probably bumped up to bottom end 7b+ now that the wobbly block jug is no longer there?

Done this in 2005 or 06. One of the best 7b s in the Dale with the polish to prove it.
steve_biczyk - Lead rpt - 15/Aug/09 with Mark

First 7b. Third day on it, I did well on the first but got nowhere on the second. It took me three lead attempts and definitely felt at my limit for the time being.
