Flowers are for the Dead** 7b+
[flowers, 3 kb]16m. 16m. A good route which traces a rightward trending line to the left edge of the Broken Dreams roof. The first two bolts are difficult to clip and are often pre-clipped. © ROCKFAX

Did some links on the hard bit trying to warm up. Had a redpoint and just couldn't get warm enough to put a proper effort in.
Luke Owens - Lead dog - 23/Sep/14 with Alex Gray

Mega greasy for the time of year. Better beta sorted for crux and climbed through the awkward middle section clipping the 3rd bolt on lead.
Luke Owens - Lead dog - 18/Sep/14 with Alex Gray

Good bouldery route, feels unlikely till you unlock the sequence.
Mark Riley - Lead RP - 31/Jul/14 with Ryan, Mattlamb90, Luke Clarke

Got on the sharp end,cruised to 3rd bolt and then couldnt get it clipped. Mark then smashed it in!
Mattlamb90 - Lead dog - 31/Jul/14 with Mark Riley, Luke

All moves done, rp next
Mattlamb90 - TR dog - 29/Jul/14 with Luke

Put the clips in and had a quick burn, feels doable
Mattlamb90 - TR dog - 23/Jul/14 with Luke

Very short session, just got reacquainted, absolutely freezing in the fading light. Couldn't stay warm enough, so did some links.
Luke Owens - Lead dog - 20/Jul/14 with Sam Milner

Did some big links on lead, clipping the 3rd bolt feels like the crux now! Greasy conditions with no breeze and lack of skin meant the redpoints will have to wait.
Luke Owens - Lead dog - 24/Jun/14 with Sam Milner

Better beta sorted for crux. Massive link from between the 1st and 2nd clip to the top. All clipping positions sorted.
Luke Owens - Lead dog - 23/Jun/14 with Ally Smith

In 3 sections, floor to 2nd bolt. Then below 2nd bolt to 4th bolt 2 finger pocket and then from the pocket to the top. Need to finger out best place to clip the 3rd bolt then it's redpoint time!
Luke Owens - Lead dog - 19/Jun/14 with Sam Milner

not often you get away with such scrappy climbing at Dinbren! first RP attempt after two top-ropes
anguskille - Lead RP - 17/Jun/14 with Rob

Got a flowing sequence sorted and located some other holds. Felt greasy but did all the moves. Did a good link from slopey crimp to the fat slopey pinch/sidepull.
Luke Owens - Lead dog - 17/Jun/14 with Ally Smith

Inspiring route! Did all the moves pretty quick, just need to sort some foot placements. It's on!

Finally! Classic dinbren - taken me ages to work it out, and then it felt ok!
Adam Booth - Lead RP - 18/Aug/13 with David Liu

2nd RP, unexpected tick today - thanks to Adam for the beta! Very pleased.
davidliu - Lead RP - 18/Aug/13 with Adam Booth

Felt much more do-able than last year. By the time I'd figured it out I was too knackered! Hopefully get it soon...

Jesus, what the hell are you supposed to do in the middle?!
Adam Booth - TR dnf - 24/Aug/12 with David Rose

Good technical climbing on good rock.

Some lovely flowing moves. One sesh, 3rd redders. Getting fitter..
zero six - Lead RP - May/12

Hidden - Lead - Mar/11

First real sport 7c. Get in. Got clips in, chalked some holds. First redpoint attempt, managed to get and get 3rd bolt clipped despite not having practised where to clip, but fell off next to it. Blasted it on second redpoint and it felt enjoyable and not to bad. Encouragingly felt like i could climb alot harder. Cheers will for belay.
Ed Booth - Lead RP - 09/Nov/09 with Will N

Managed in 3 sections really. Should be able to start red point attempts next session! Cool winter proj and I'm sure i can do it.
Ed Booth - TR dog - 07/Oct/09 with Sean Grady

Lee Proctor - Lead - 2009

hard to work out moves but once you get them theyre ok. moving right at 2nd bolt is though still to be sorted...
