The Wall of Evening Light*** 7b+
38m. Epic sport route with some fair size run outs despite recent re-bolting. (70m rope allows you to lower off in one)

Amazing line, got to be one of the best around. Keen to finish it off next year. Unfortunatly it was mega greasy today.

Brill route up this awesome wall though badly bolted. Long slings needed to avoid rope drag. The belay would better 5m lower since the climbing is only severe from there and would this would avoid the ropes chaffing on the rock when lowering. The rock was not slimy but it was a strangely warm and humid evening. Great beta from Adam but not enough time for a RP try.

To warm up. Forgot sequence on crux and nearly fluffed it. Barely felt pumped this time.

Got it clean to mid crux pinch where I went from OK to me ga pumped and came off. Got some better beta for the top groove. Rests aren't actually that bad...

Just incredible. Cheers to the crew for he beta, pumped outta my mind!
Gus - Lead β - 16/Aug/15 with Jack Lawless, adam wainwright, Rob Greenwood

Dropped it from the very last move, second successful lap constituted exceptional fitness training (but I'd still rather have done it first go). Great beta from Jack/Adam, plus good scenes from Gus.

Fantastic route! So pumpy! Hard to work out where to try and rest and where to push on. Need to think carefully about extending draws/unclipping as you go to avoid terminal rope drag by the top. Got to after the traverse on the onsight attempt. Tricky slopey/pinchy crux section and a heart breaker move to get established on the jugs in the groove. Had another go and got a few moves further. Should go soon.

My biggest onsight fight ever! Didnít feel very flowy at start, and got pumped. Close call in at least 5 places, but read the route well and gave more than I thought I had to give! (Especially at end when I was dropping the end with body stuck in wrong position, but managed to improvise a way through!). Stunning route, 3 stars anywhere and an experience I'm not going to forget for quite a while.

Wow, amazing. Went all the way to the top in evening light :-) . Awesome route, tricky route finding and sustained but never desperate. Feels very euro. 70m rope essential

Great conditions on the crag - I still needed to try hard on this. It felt harder than Boat People - brilliant climbing though.

On sight to first lower off, felt like 7b. Three star route just to there.
