Outside the Gate*** 7b

Rockfax Description
The routes's difficulties are split by the left-leaning, open corner in the middle of the bulging section of the upper wall. Start below the blank wall directly below the corner. Climb the fingery wall and flake to below the midway corner. Inch up to easier ground in the corner and climb this to more tricky climbing at its end, where the overhang and headwall provide a spectacular finale. © ROCKFAX

2nd go. Really good. Moving left and up into the corner was the crux for me.

Took a while to figure out the moves on the first go. Almost got it on the second go but blew it on the moves to get established in the crux due to using an incorrect sequence. Used Phil's sequence after that (press out with the right hand and use a pocket) and it worked fine. Simply didn't have enough steam left on the third go. Great route with varied moves. Getting to the second clip is the hardest bit!
