Rockfax Description
A brilliant route up the line of triangular grooves. The initial wall and groove leads to two juggy pockets. Continue up the wall above until a hard move right gains the finishing wall. Lower-off at the main break. © Rockfax

Found the move to the eyes a bit hard work out, luckily had James on Indian Summer telling me the higher crux sequence. I find this okay but the idea of clipping off the boss is exciting. Took a big ride from near ledge as pockets not all dry. Very good route.

1st 7c+ 4th day on it, 2nd RP day, 6th PR attempt - 3rd that day. Never under-estimate the 3rd RP!! Lunge again at the crux rather than the drop knee.

Came close on the onsight, got it second go. Bit of a fight! Amazing route. Stunning, even to European standards

Had brilliant beta from Pete and had watched Chris come really close so I had a pretty good idea of what to do. First 7c+ flash and on the best sport route I've done in the country - a great experience.

2nd go. So close on the flash, placing draws - fell off after the "boss", going for the jugs! Damn, 7c+ flash is just round the corner!

Went quickly after I changed my beta for the crux, but still very close on the successful attempt. Awesome route.

Did it first go, putting draws in as I went, after 2 poor redpoint attemps a few days earlier. Lovely route.

Superb, one of the best sports routes I've done. Struggled loads with keeping enough in my arms for the clip off the boss! 12th redpoint.

Desperate lunge for break after boss.... semi-footless finish due to uncontrollable disco-leg. Happy days!

Two rests: fumbled 2nd clip above eyes, bottled move to break from boss at last clip.

Pitiful flash attempt, then two pitiful redpoints. Finally sorted my life out as it was getting dark at the end of the day.

Stunning route. 7a+ to the 'eyes' and a good shake, then blast upto the boss, shakeout and final tricky move to the first big break. Breath and enjoy the run-out to the belay.
