The Beast* 7a+

Rockfax Description
A wall climb with some fingery and technical moves but don't believe the 7b+ written on the rock. It gets a bit close to Imias on some sections but just about stays independent where it matters. Share the last bolt and lower-off with Imias. © ROCKFAX

A very eliminate line which continually forces you into imia. A better way up the wall would be to start up this then continue up the obvious flake of imia.

Plus a top rope try maybe one to come back for.

2nd go, hard crux but very nice and interesting climbing.

So hard for me too powerful

Very pleased. I didn't get a whole lot of beta, more just inspiration. Climbed it again on top rope to retrieve my quickdraws after CoffeePot gave up. It's a pretty continuous series of varied moves on tiny holds - great stuff.

Had a look at the crux on way off of imia then went for the clean ascent.

Not a great route. Numerous points of aid used to get gear back.
