Good climbing good moves such a good route
bobbie - Lead RP - 16/Aug/15

Hmm, found a move on the bottom half incredibly powerful. Going to be tricky.

1st 7c, 4th day, 3 attempts per day.
cooperman - Lead RP - 21/Jun/15 with Chris Rabs

Finished my A-Levels, Ticked my route. Happy Days. 2nd Session, 7th tie in, 3rd RP
JamesTurnbull97 - Lead RP - 19/Jun/15 with Dan Turner, Will Buck

got past last clip on best attempt. became too cold and windy
cooperman - Lead dog - 14/Jun/15 with Greg Foster

Great route, felt easy on the day!
Dave Mayes - Lead RP - 11/Jun/15 with James

Absolute punter. Kept falling off an easy move going to the second bolt. Pathetic. Have been told I was using crap beta so perhaps there is hope.
Will Hunt - TR dnf - 11/Jun/15

1st time on 7c. moves felt fine but powered out
cooperman - Lead dog - 11/Jun/15 with Neil G

Third go. Felt ok once I knew the moves. Didn't need a clip stick. A new grade for me! Suitably bouldery with reachy powerful moves.
MichaelGallimore - Lead RP - 10/Jun/15 with jon lawson

Fell off boulder problem then 2nd go. Found a no hands kneebar!
sev - Lead RP - 26/May/15

wintermute - Lead RP - 17/May/15 with Jon

First of the grade. Was quite a battle, dropping the last move numerous times. Such a cool route!
Jonny Nick - Lead RP - 16/May/15

1st red point session. Couldn't do the second crux moving off the spike.
MichaelGallimore - Lead dog - 14/May/15 with jon lawson

1st RP, 1 session. Not too bad with a heel on 1st crux and big drop knee higher up.
Luke Brooks - Lead RP - 08/May/15

Almost got it in a session after making a big link on my last burn but fluffed the crux! Came back and did it second go with some sneaky new beta!

felt more tired on bottom moves today and still not linking the move into the pocket. Linked top half though still struggling with move to the two finger pocket
julesp - Lead dog - 01/Sep/13 with Iain

julesp - Lead dog - 31/Aug/13 with Iain

Will go next time
LRob - Lead dog - 24/Aug/13

individual moves all fine except the move after the rest cause I can't reach. need to use an intermediate wide pinch
julesp - Lead dog - 10/Aug/13 with Iain

Pauls beta for the first sequence worked like a charm! totally psyched by this route now
julesp - TR dog - 09/Aug/13 with Iain

PeterDawson - Lead O/S - 07/Aug/13

finally got a bit of beta for the first sequence that might work
julesp - TR dog - 04/Aug/13 with iain and neil

Clipping the fifth clip after, rather than before, the throw was a good idea!
PeteH - Lead RP - 13/Jul/13 with Steve Taylor

Great route. Steep on big holds. Felt pretty steady for 7c.
Cailean Harker - Lead O/S - 16/Jun/13 with Hannah

Wicked route, really steep and a very powerful lower section then good rest and a second set of hard moves on big holds. Fell off on flash, then did it third go.. first 7c in a day! Felt miles easier than 50 for 5!
