Awesome! Lots harder than Clarion Call, imo. Some great moves on the face.
MYox - Lead RP - 03/Oct/15 with Jon

Much easier today, have got my endurance back
dom94 - Lead RP - 30/Sep/15 with Poppy Henson

Couldn't get through the bulge.
JHiley - TR dnf - 26/Sep/15 with PCC

Well, after initial tries, I thought easier that Clarian Call but as the repoint attempts started to stack up it became clear that perhaps the new 7a+ grade is merited.
JLS - Lead RP - 24/Sep/15 with Chris S., Ian T.

Cool climbing. After a bit of TR practice, two RP attempts failed to secure the expected tick. Most unsatisfactory. :)

Got lost whilst trying to to warm-up on this and didn't really recover from the pump for the entire day...
quiffhanger - Lead rpt - 05/Sep/15 with Michaela

As hard as I remembered! Couldn't remember what to do pulling over top bulge so once again did it second go. 7a+ Shirley?
Duncan Campbell - Lead rpt - 02/Sep/15 with Howard Lawledge

Forgotten how appallingly difficult this route is...
Rob Greenwood - UKClimbing - Lead rpt - 31/Aug/15 with Penny Orr

Desperate! I tried to climb this as a warm up. Got through the low crux only to fall from the jugs. Didn't have a second go.
penny.orr - Lead dog - 31/Aug/15 with rob greenwood

Felt hard first time, but found a sneaky toe for the crux which took the sting out of it. First RP.

Lack of stamina, fell off the last move to the crimp on multiple attempts, clearly just didn't want it enough. good route, will be back.
