[I Punched Judy, 3 kb]15m. A powerful start, tenuous middle section and difficult finish up the wide crack gives this route bags of character, lower-off above the upper bulge. © ROCKFAX

First 7b+, so psyched! Video:
Luke Owens - Lead RP - 09/Aug/13 with Ryan "Spidey" Mcconnell

Massive progress, had 3 redpoints and fell off getting into the top crack one move from victory!
Luke Owens - Lead dog - 06/Aug/13 with Ally Smith, Matt Lamb

2nd go after a random post crux foot slip on the flash go
Ally Smith - Lead RP - 01/Aug/13 with Luke Owens

New beta from Ally got me to a new high point by the 3rd bolt and have a new sequence for the crux. Bridged out left foot! It's on!
Luke Owens - Lead dog - 01/Aug/13 with Ally Smith, Luke Clarke

4th Session, powered out by the third bolt. Finding the moves in isolation easier.

2nd session, not so good!
Luke Owens - Lead dog - 19/Jun/13 with Matt Lamb

Worked into 2 half
Mattlamb90 - TR dog - 04/Jun/13 with Luke Owens

Just about managed all the moves, managed a small link from the jug to the chains. Not my style at all, so psyched to stick at it! Felt miles harder than Barrance for me! Great route.

2nd go. Sooo nearly O/S. Dropped it going to the jug at the bottom of the crack with a heinous sequence (6b slap). Found a crimp out right making it 5c.

Stig - Lead dog - 27/Aug/10 with Goi

Great route. Boulderly start, awkward middle and a bunched finish into the crack.

dannyboy83 - Lead O/S - 31/Oct/09 with Shane

Tried onsight, got up to touching the big flake but couldn't really make the powerful pull up so bolt to bolted it and then worked a few sequences and then led it first red point. Nice to do the route quickly, probably only 7b. Great route.

surprised to get this as was tired; high right foot key at the start. a good climb, not much harder than Walking With Barrence
ksjs - Lead RP - 08/Jul/08 with john

clips in, that move to get the jug is cool
