Lightning Strike*** f7A+ / V7
[Lightning Strike, V7, 3 kb]

Rockfax Description
The fine undercut prow above the cave is the classic of the Boulderfield. Start with both hands on a good handrail at the back of the cave. Steep moves on weird jugs lead to a hard pull around the lip. Finish up the nose. © ROCKFAX

Could have flashed if I had beta. Bottom of the grade, not really harder than Relativity?

Tried very briefly 2 years ago. Got some great double heel beta for the moves around the lip. Properly skin-of-teeth, cutloose getting the good RH, could barely close hands on the top holds.
