Cave and Crag*** 7a

Rockfax Description
An excellent pitch. Climb the steep lower face to gain a rest on the arete. Finish up the well-positioned wall left of the arete. © ROCKFAX

UKC Logbook Description
The best route on the crag. A fine pitch leading to the upper arete left of the big Corner. The overhanging lower wall, is climbed via a tenuous crack-line, mostly on good but spaced holds, stepping left near the top to the big ledge. The more technical upper arete is started direct and climbed with a sense of urgency until the top and the lower-off are reached.

Redpoint 2nd go today. Previously tried it a month ago. Hard for 7a? Much harder finish than 'Practically Everything' despite them allegedly being the same grade. Last bolt is hard to clip as it is in the middle of a very tricky and strenuous crux.

At last, a dry evening and some outdoor climbing! Brilliant route - second best at the crag though in my opinion.

Great route, done all moves but no time to have a redpoint. Upper arete is in a fantastic position.
