Bored of the Lies*** 7b+
[The driest it has been in years...  ...but at least it's quiet., 2 kb]20m.

Rockfax Description
This product of an earlier age now appears to have an odd line, though there is a logic to it; worth doing. The lower wall is sustained to a semi-rest at a junction with Big Zipper, finish up this. The original finish traversed right and dropped down to what is now Ouijaboard. © ROCKFAX

Felt fine today, 2 very distinct sequences at the crux, left is much easier with fewer moves, but right to the pinch is more obvious from the floor. Don't think the crux on this is as hard as the first overlap on clarion call, but the top is quite sustained. 7b?

Came off last move first go, gutting. Off on traverse after that.
JamieSparkes - Lead dnf - 28/Jul/15 with Jake Young

Can't do the middle move, not sure how the top would go either, as it feels hard enough after the easier first section of the big zipper.
benkelsey - Lead dog - 24/Jul/15 with Shaun Humphreys

3rd go! have tried big zipper before!
shaunhumphreys - Lead RP - 24/Jul/15 with Tom A, benkelsey

50 50 catching a throw move in the middle, but should go clean if enough in the tank for the big zipper finish.

Great route. Fell off the very last move due to useless use of feet on the flash attempt the day before.

Yes!! Got this 2nd attempt tonight just as it went dark, following 4 attempts on Sunday and after working it the week before. All 5 of the failed attempts ended on the last two moves up to the belay. So glad to clip in at the top! Big Zipper finish.
