Putting the clips in after dogging it last year- not sure what to call it! Bit unbalanced but it keeps going all the way to the top.

Could've been my First 7a onsight if I'dve gone right at the crux - doh! Got it 2nd try thought. Crux felt pretty straightforward to me.

1rest at crux

Hidden - Lead dnf - 24/Jun/11

Had watched Phil try is so knew where the crux was but not really beta as my memory for someone else's moves is pretty poor! The crux is pretty stiff but over fairly quickly. Just a matter of holding it together after that - probably only about 6b+ or 6c after the crux. Fortunately was able to find lots of rests. First ever 7a onsight.
Misha - Lead O/S - 15/May/11 with Phil

Thought I might get the redpoint, very close second time but ran out of gas above the crux and took a 10m flyer past the ledge!

2nd go, "not hidden, but not obvious" hold hiatus
Kevster - Lead RP - 13/Mar/11

Tough in the mid-section, with one very hard move. Either that or there's a hold somewhere . . .

Nice end of the day route. About 6b+ except for the 5m of climbing above the ledge, but all enjoyable. Sandy on the ledge.
