First go today. Still felt tough but ok Now I knew which way I was going.

Had one go having watched the route a few times. Beautiful route with one super hard section, on which I had put a foot wrong on. Stuck in position for what felt like an eternity, got super pumped and peeled trying to move my foot and down climb, pulled back on, then quickly battled to the top with a very embarrassing schoolboy pump (foolishly didn't stop much to shake it off once through crux). Near miss on the flash. Heart rate = 93%.

Very cool. Head not in the game after a very early flight though.

Beta from Sebastian helped. Excellent route, worth 7a+.

great feature through the overhanging stuff, tricky for a 7a

with Ed, Ad + Rob
sheppy 10/Mar/14 Lead β

Nice route, somehow missed the huge jug in the crux flake which is probably why it felt like easy 7a+ rather than 7a

Last route of the trip, just before we had to leave for the airport. Thought I my foot was going to pop at the crux, luckily it didn't! Whoop! Polished and chipped. But ace all the same.

willoates 07/Nov/12 Lead β

possibly the hardest 7a i did in siurana, and run out at the start above the block. good route all the same.
