The Toilet* 8a
[Toby fighting to stay on the Toilet, 3 kb]22m. One of the more popular technical routes at the Tor. Climb to the top of the prominent flake then move up and traverse left via hard moves on poor footholds. Continue direct via more hard and reachy moves to pull onto the slab and an easier finish. © ROCKFAX
FA. Steve Lewis 1988. It has become much harder since the first ascent.

Unexpected, hard fight with the grease.

Got all the moves in a couple of sessions but taken a while to finally link it all. Fitness weakness exposed!

All the moves done, which was a surprise. I don't think I have the chutzpah to link this through the powerful undercut moves, but I'm going to plug away anyway because it feels like good training.

F.A. My favourite new route at Raven Tor. Loss of hold's has made it harder than the original 7c grade but is it really 8a? Maybe I'll do it again sometime to check it out.
