Nice sequence up the groove, fingery. I thought it felt standard 7a on first aquaintance.

Luke Dawson - Lead O/S - 21/Nov/10

tom106 - Lead O/S - 11/Jul/10 with laura

Failed again! Although left til last climb to RP. Tricky 3rd clip, with a hard right pull to get your feet high enough... Doesn't feel that soft
DrGav - Lead dog - 13/Jun/10 with Wendy

Good climbing and certainly soft for 7a; even if it took me more tries than I care to admit.

1st redpoint. It is soft for 7a, 6c+ as per new cc guide is probably right...

Lovely route. Just like the crux on Wind In The Riggin, just twice over. 6c+ is about right.
