[Alex on Dionysos, 2 kb]Relatively straight-forward climbing leads to a large ledge then step right and make big moves between good holds up the wall above. Don't blow the final fingery moves to the lower-off. Perhaps 7a if you clip the chain before grabbing. © ROCKFAX

got to the chains and took a practice fall rather than clipping as I sent it last year.

A bit poor. Could be a much better route if the grade wasn't determined by the clipping!

A little disappointed, tried to downclimb to the ledge for a rest but fell off. Very powerful above and clipping the chain is a bugger! Polished

westyb3 - Lead O/S - 01/May/12 with Heather Ogston

Great climb. Failed as most do at the move up to the chains. Bit of a eye-popping move once I figured it out!

clean on 2nd RP attempt, (1 o/s attempt on 5th Apr - stopped by 'stopper move', clean 2nd RP go) quality steep climbing. probably just sneaks into 7a bracket to RP but harder to onsight?
