Draws in then 4 gos where either I persisted in using duff crux beta or didn't know what to do with my feet once through the crux. Done next go. Really good, nice contrast from RF (I thought this easier than RF, I do wonder though if beta is the key to this i.e. I was shown good beta but without is maybe why people are saying hard 7c?)

2 gos, all moves done. No harder than RF.

First 7c! Took a while to warm into the moves but managed to figured out some crucial last minute beta for the top section.

Quick top rope, then first redpoint. knew as soon as id done the bottom crux that id do it, although came very close to blowing the very last move! first 7c and first E6 in a day! well happy!

was pretty wet. but still close to getting it clean on toprope. climbed passed the crux (wet holds) and then second overlap well. but just couldn't get the top sequence before the lower off quite right. so thin!!

Tough nut to crack. Every move needs thought...Looking forward to red pointing.

Really good slate climbing, tricky crux but fairly sustained overall. Felt easy on the send after 2 dogged leads and 3 falls at crux on redpoint attempts.
