Yay, my first 7a+. Long overdue. Beautiful route and good for short people as there are opportunities for lots of stemming to get higher.

A really top route, great climbing and position. Did during a brief period of a decent breeze. Not too hard for the grade but harder than 7a. Bottom end E5 6a.

Forgot I'd done it already apparently...

Stuart William ?/Oct/15 Lead dnf

Good but just not feeling confident or steady. Bailed off at the cave. Disappointed

Good tufa climbing with a couple of hard sections and otherwise steady going

climbing was very nice up until my foot slipped whilst pulling slack to clip with the rope wrapped round my leg.... not ideal

Should have got it first attempt not third! Thwarted by not knowing where to go and a foot slip.

Didn't spot undercling on crux, and narrowly fell off in a fairly spectacular inverted fashion. Annoyed.

Holiday RP project for this trip. Some brilliant tufa climbing, an excellent rest then a steep and strenuous crux. A classy route. 3 times working it then it went 3rd redpoint (but 1st after finally sussing my crux sequence).

Easy first section leading to a very powerful move over the bulge.

quite technical bridging up the lower tufa and quite powerful pulling through the bulge. good but not a patch on Lucky Strike IIRC (or maybe i was just tired?)
