Northern Invasion 7a

Rockfax Description
Start easy and finish with difficulty, the headwall is hard to read. © ROCKFAX

UKC Logbook Description
The line of bolts right of Julie Ocean. Starts easy and finishes with difficulty, the headwall is difficult to read. You must stay left of the arete on the headwall for the 7a tick, moving right onto the sloping ledge and finishing up Biggus Dickus makes it easier and off route.

Onsite by going up groove on the right - probably 6b ish. Tried direct eliminate without using groove - need to work last move Tried arete of groove. Poor route with an eliminate finale for the grade

Ed Babs - Lead O/S - 12/Nov/11 with Iain Moodie

Top seemed very eliminate, I did it with relative ease staying well within what I would consider the 'line' and it seemed a bit too easy for 7a and at odds with the description, guess I wasn't direct enough...
