[One last RP.........., 2 kb]Climb the roof crack of Dr Gonzo and then follow a leftwards line of bolts. Bolted by Dave Johnson. © ROCKFAX
Start just left of Cubase. Climb direct to join the right hand side of the Dr Gonzo roof crack; pull around the roof and traverse leftwards on dwindling footholds to reach a good undercut then climb the overhanging prow above to a lower off. Superb and probably one of the best routes at Dinbren!

2nd go. Not really the 3* route it's made out to be. Still lots of snappy footholds about.

Can't remember when I did this but realised it wasn't in my logbook.

Bolt toBolt then 2nd redpoint. Psyched. No flash but happy with quick ascent. Benchmark 7b+ and pretty cool.
Ed Booth - Lead RP - 25/Apr/11

probably 7b+? very good. 1st go (TR): struggled with crack, bit grotty. 2nd go: negotiated crack on 3rd try, 2 rests to get to top. 3rd go: tired, 3 rests.

Entry level 7c but harder than Bandits and IPJF. Similar overall difficulty to Dyperspace but very different style. Brilliant positions, well bolted, clean and finger friendly - get on it!!

Excellent route with a sustained and pumpy finish. Felt every bit 7c.
andy farnell - Lead RP - 03/May/10 with Ian Patterson

The general consensus is 7b+ and not 7c, either way its a great route!
