6 days of tries and first route of this grade for about 20 years. An anti-style of route for me, big locks on good holds so all the more satisfying. Great route and a real tussle at the very top coz I was completely pumped.

2nd go. Awesome route. Bit of a sting in the tail!
Luke Brooks - Lead RP - 25/May/15
Wow, what a line! Stunning postions. Sustained and steady climbing with a few hard moves up to the roof then couple of super powerful pulls to get to the belay. Pleased to get to first redpoint
Glyn - Lead RP - 25/May/15 with Luke
Yes! Have been saving this for many, many years and it didn't disappoint. Nearly fell off eyeballing the belay. Best 7c in the UK?
Tom Briggs - Jagged Globe - Lead O/S - 28/Sep/14 with Andy Cave
Got it all worked out now. Two big links essentially but came off the last move. just need to remember it for next year.

Brilliant pitch, one that I'd wanted to do for years but never believed myself to be good enough. Doing it in a session put those doubts to bed somewhat.

dominic lee - Lead RP - 22/Jun/13 with nathan lee
Midges were out in force so just went up on top rope to strip it and surprised myself by getting up in one. Was close to my limit so successful red point is not foregone conclusion but good to know I have the arms for it. :-)

2nd go. dropped it going to the pocket jugs in the second groove, but would have dropped it at over the top lip otherwise. Awesome route but the finish is a bit nasty and awkward.

First 7c - Long sustained overhang on mostly good holds with lower and finishing cruxes. Like Spanish rock...awesome !

Might just be doable if a rest can be found and an efficient sequence developed for the mid section. Worth another look anyway. Brilliant climbing in an amazing situation.

Stunning line, stunning climb. Nearly blew it by the clip below the final overhang but recovered to blast to the belay. Anyone climbing 7c in the UK should do this route. Probably the best of it's grade I've done
