Fell (wet crux hold). Then clean from before crux to finish.

Cannot fathom a sequence for crux that can be climbed into.

First 7c. Took a fair few redpoint attempts and lots of skin.

an exiting climbing with a fustrating lower section but a really sweet route did on first redpoint on the day.

My first 7c, got it after 3 short sessions. Should probably go and try to bag my first 7b+ now :)

Found a short person's technical way of reaching the undercling, which avoided any need for big slappy spans. Done in a session.
