2nd session. Sequence sussed. Can lead through from "ear" between clips 2 & 3. Just need more speed, strength, and less sun to link.

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
