Pleased to get this first session this year after falling off the top the one day I tried it last year and thinking that I must have become much weaker since. Caught the big jug at the start right on my fingertips - ouchy!

Dropped this first redpoint from where it joins Comedy - hasn't figured out what to do as hasn't expected to get that r! Third redpoint. Harder start than Comedy but more places to recover.
PeteH - Lead RP - 06/Jun/15 with Steve Taylor

Harder than comedy i think

so the trick is to climb this as quickly as possible before you get pumped.

Start is so burly! Slipped off the top 2nd RP then too tired on my next go. One for next time!

andy jennings - Lead dog - 31/May/14 with Chris p, will b

Good climbing, pretty tricky for the grade and only worked the moves... Yet to piece it together!

As routes are graded for the on-sight (not the flash with your mate's beta!) then surely has to be one if the hardest 7b+'s around. No easier than Comedy.
Jon Garside - Lead RP - 29/Sep/13 with Toby Dunn

2nd go.

Brutal warm up after nearly 12 months of no sport climbing!! All moves done on second go with a few rests - very happy with that!

Fell by the first bolt on an onsight attempt years ago and lowered off, so not technically a flash but it felt like one. Harder than Comedy.

another very good route, did not expect the onsight
AshWH - Lead O/S - 04/Sep/11 with Tom Bonnert, Jonny White

Got some good beta from John Dunne

Did it second go after fluffing the start. Felt desperate at the end of the day. Felt as hard as Comedy so I have voted 7c but I would have to do it fresh to be more objective.
JM - Lead RP - 25/Jun/11 with Dave Pinnington

Rob1988 - Lead RP - 24/Jun/11 with Cal

Harder than comedy is you ask me
Lord_ash2000 - Lead RP - 05/Jun/11 with John Maskell

Got all the hard moves bolt to bolt, though bottled the easy top with beer fear. Awesome, really keen to get back for this.

Got it first redpoint attempt. I can see why people say that it's every bit as hard as Comedy, seeing as it's more sustained on less good holds, you just need to keep going on it.
Sean_J - Lead RP - 29/Aug/10 with Andy

2nd go. Up to the top on flash but very pumped.

Cool powerful climbing. Put the draws in then led it, 2nd go. Did it all static on lead which was suprising.

So close on the flash, placing draws, with good beta from Gaz! Past all the hard climbing the fell going for the good pocket by the 4th clip. 1st RP. Prefer it to Comedy personally.
Matt Fry - Lead RP - 10/Jul/09 with Jordan Buys

So much for the onsight...
