Rockfax Description
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 last move on-sight but wasn't expecting such bad holds! 1st rp

Ran out of energy, too steep and reachy for me...

Tried OS for training to finish days session but fell on final jugs and couldn't clip chain. Even fresh I think it'll be hard. Worthy of its stars.

Steady until resting ledge then steep moves to hard finish. Had two goes but not enough left in me at the end of the day.

Clipping the chain is by far the hardest move

Went for the on sight but fell on the last move (misleading tick marks). Should have chilled out on the ledge for longer.

Grabbed the chain!

Can you guess...? Dropped the top move to the clip! Why not place the clip lower and have all the moves in keeping with each other? Would have been my first 7a onsight, but never mind :)

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

Some nice cool "indoors" moves on some sections and hard to leave the ledge but the chains are just pathetically positioned (unfortunately like a high number of Kalymnian routes).

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