7a+ in new guide. Thought it was tough for that grade. Pumpy warm up.

Should've Onsighted this really, fell off the easy bit going to the chains on my first try (got confused as there are so many holds to choose from - I ended up going for a rubbish one). Did it first go today putting the clips in.

Glad that Claire convinced me to get on this, managed to get a high kneebar to clip the chains from. Bolting is pretty spaced higher up.

Putting the draws in with one fall at mid height. sent next go.
benkelsey - Lead RP - 12/Apr/14 with Alex Mccan, Shaun Humphreys

Plenty of rests if a little painful. One very wet hold which was a little disconcerting.

Cool, 7a+! Great fun. Very similar to DNA by all accounts.
JKinsella - 27/Sep/13

4 attempts. To be continued....
alek - Lead dog - 12/May/13 with Laurence Everitt

First RP. I love 4 pound Lonsdale kneepads, almost as much as the knee bars on this route.

Favourite of my kalymnos trip. Steady tufa pulling with a crux sequence about half way. Could be slightly better bolted. Onsightable if you can squeeze for long enough.

put the draws in. 3 rests. what. a. route. you go out as far as you go up. each hold you could lose your arm in, how did it feel so hard. best sport route I have ever been on by some margin.

Loads of knee-bar rests so no harder than DNA I think. Great fun climbing through some really steep terrain on generally massive holds!
