[Yan Thomson on the rockover on Body Machine at Raven Tor, 3 kb]28m. A classic route with great moves throughout its full length, and includes a finish which can spit you off. Climb up the technical and fingery bottom wall, just to the right of the Indecent Exposure start, to the break and a rest at a flake. (Stick clip the second or third bolt when the bottom wall is wet - 7c for the full route from here). Move up and rightwards and make a hard rock-over to a good hold. More good moves lead to the next break and bit of a rest. Pull over and sort out which holds to use to shimmy rightwards before a final big heave over the top bulge. Half Decent, 7c - Climb Body Machine to the first break, then make tricky moves up and slightly left to join Indecent Exposure at its crux. Continue up that route to finish. © ROCKFAX

Lots and lots of beta, primarily watching Zippy top rope it (easily) 2 seconds before my ascent. Move after the rockover on bottom wall the crux, hangign out for bloody ages at the break the key.

Second session, second red point attempt - fought to the very last move and then fluffed it, making a stupid mistake but excellent fun, can't wait to finish.
