Good climbing, worth a re-match.

7b in my book. Awesome route. 3 years since I first got on it. Went fairly steadily today except getting a bit nervy on the top crack. needed to have a word with myself to calm down and then finished it off

Lives up to the hype, a brilliant route. 7a+/b in the new SMC guide seems fair. Went 2nd RP after a previous session to work out the moves. Thanks to locals Ian and Tess for the friendly company and pointing out the useful knee bar rest!

Not convinced.

A very pumpy warm up...especially when your belayer is keeping you extremely tight....
dj_brigham05 - Lead O/S - 18/May/12 with Steff

Hard for the grade I thought

Steve Crowe - Lead RP - 01/May/12 with KM

great route and a bit pokey at the grade with no chalk.
ali_robb - Lead O/S - 22/Mar/12

Sustained and tricky to work out the right crux sequence. Destroyed by the time I got to the top.
Dr Toph - Lead dog - 12/Nov/11 with Seb, Sophie

Linked first 5 bolts, placing quickdraws, then it took 3 or 4 rests to get to the top. Had no time to RP as it was getting dark. Super route though, will be back!
