Is Vic There?** 7a

Rockfax Description
A particularly good wall climb that, if caught in prime condition, warrants an extra star. Thin moves to a jug at the break are immediately followed by a stretchy move to get established on a stuck-on block. Some great flowstone finishes the pitch. © ROCKFAX

Struggled in the first third, falling a couple of times in the same place. Once I'd sussed that it was straight to the top. Well worth revisiting to get clean.

Very pleased to get this. First redpoint attempt. Love the moves and really cool flowstone to finish off.

Done all the moves. Difficult to link. The route is very cool, I like the crimpy moves to get to the break, feet go really high.

Chuffed to onsight this, thin start but good holds to aim for. Lucky to do the move to the stuck block. Above there is beautiful 6a flowstone climbing, so good I lowered off and did it again!

1st RP. Brilliant moves. Thought redpoint wasn't gonna happen as I couldn't crack the move from the side pull to the stuck on block until Chris pointed out on his try there was a little crease at the top of it.

Already boxed by this point after an attempt on Englands Dreaming straight before, someone needed to climb it to get the draws down though! Nice climbing and one to come back for!

Sadistically bolted to give some strenny clips for shorties!

Great route. Tired and dogged most of it, but could made all the individual moves so one to come back to when fresher.
gibsond - Lead dog - 27/May/13 with Drew Mulcahy

Much better than wolfgang, but also much harder.

First RP...prob the best route I've been on at Portland, loved the dynamic deadpoint from the crimp to the jug!
