Rockfax Description
Steep but easy moves lead to a hard section at the change in angle. The 7b grade on the rock is for those who go too direct at this point. The rest is easy and fun. © ROCKFAX

Came off at crux on onsight attempt. Finished route. Pulled ropes. Clean 2nd go. Did the 'dodge right at crux' version for the 7a+ tick. Felt 7a+ was about right but so hot today it was hard to judge. Good moves. Top relatively easy after a good rest.

First time of trying got to the crux at the 6th quickdraw and the fell of going up with my left. Shook out and then got straight back on, did the move, and carried on to the top from there with no rests. Then did on first redpoint.

Very difficult to read. Even the "cop out" on the right wasnt easy. Good route though!

Worked lower section. Good jugs once burnt passed committing 3rd clip(?)...then move on to harder upper section - I'll have to go back for!

a bit naughty: you really have to go very far right (almost a 2M horizontal traverse) to get the holds, not the slight detour it looks on the topo. anyway, very good and probably better if you go direct though its very blind when you pull up.
