John and James were working this so I came over to have a rest from projecting Dumbfounded. Figured out a new beta on my first go which then all of us used to send it. Got it on my second redpoint. Felt quite soft, only about 3 hard moves. Quite happy with this though!
GeneralFifi - Lead RP - 19/Jun/15 with James Morgan, Freddie Erskine, John Beesley
Really pumpy route, considering how short it is. Definitely deserves 7a+ for the crux moves, though the rest is undoubtedly pretty easy. Fun day projecting this with a good group of us! Great that we all sent it!

4th RP,; sneaky drop left-knee to gain intermediate crimp, change foot, then go again to good side-pull crimp. right hand up to two finger pocket. high right foot, left foot high up on that intermediate crimp rail, and pop to juggy rail. match, right hand up to bottom of diagonal finger jug, high left foot (really high on that rail), flag right foot under, balance and go over with left hand to top.

Some people say that this is easy 7a+ but I felt there were two crux moves - one left throw to a thin side pull and the second is reaching very high and right to a small bulge type chicken head at the top. I really enjoyed this route and felt it worthy of the grade.
