First 7a in the UK. Relatively straightforward after decoding the crux sequence. Good rest at the break.

Brilliant climb, very pumpy and then the roof...well worth a burn.

with slippyale, Alice Hafer

Pretty easy moves as long as you don't pump yourself out on the roof.

got it third go, easy once you've figured the sequence, 2nd clip requires balls

Love this route. The second bolt is an awesome bouldering problem and definitely the crux.

Hard climbing up the rib, with the dread of the steep finish in the back of your mind all the time!!!

Much better start to The Unworthy. Can do the hard stuff, always fail on the rood though.
