12m. Climb rightwards to a good but blind wire placement in a flake. Move up to a bolt and make a long reach to small holds above. Pull into the recess and finish to the right. © ROCKFAX
Now fully bolted at 7a.

Went direct at the third bolt, great crux move. Nails for 7a!

Repeated again - great crux!

Weird and whacky crux slab rockover - too tough for 7a!
Ally Smith - Lead RP - 10/Apr/14 with Luke Owens

Repeated again - great crux!

Used a massive undercut right of third bolt (not sure that's in?) Then figured out a sequence to avoid massive span to slopey crimp.

Super techy but just about felt 7a

Went for On-Sight. Did all but crux. Tried redpointing with Mark's nails beta. Not the best of lines really.
Luke Owens - Lead dog - 28/Aug/12 with Matt Lamb, Mark Riley, Luke Clarke

Unsure of the exact line of this climb, I went direct above the third bolt but this is surely harder than F7a? Out left may be more reasonable? Some nice moves though, some looseness at the top :o/

Very thin balancy moves through the crux. A good 7a now with bolts.

This is now a sports route at 7a. Dad flashed all but one move (the crux). After top-roping a few times I tried and succeeded to get red-point, although I did use the tree after the crux!
