3rd session (first lead try of day). Bit of a shock - aim for the entire day was to lead to 3rd clip! Good route. Not really an eliminate - ineluctable after taking the poor RH crimp from the jugs. First half incredibly intense, ferocious crimping (fingers hurt all day afterwards). Second half a delightfully techy 7b/+.

Very good techy climbing. Conditions make a big difference on this one.

Really good route. Definately deserves more than 1 star. Also very idependant and not escapeable so therefore not eliminate.

Worked very thoroughly on Sun, 1st redpoint on Monday. 45 moves.
Tom Briggs - Jagged Globe - Lead RP - 28/Aug/06 with Rachel Hassall

Hardly a 'squeezed in eliminate'. A very independent line. F7c/7c+ to a brilliant rest, F7b+ headwall with sustained climbing on layaway's and pockets to a tough finish. Hard 8a IMHO
