Got it today on my 2nd redpoint after two overall sessions working out the lower moves. A better start to the long time classic of Ansteys cove.

Yeah! First of the grade and an absolute battle - lowered off with very little left. I've never had so many attempts at a route before. Got the moves dialled a couple of weeks ago and still managed to peal off the wobbly jug at the lower-off. Today, had a banana & caffeine gel 20 minutes before the RP which perhaps made the difference... who knows. Thanks to Ellis for the belay and encouragement throughout. Awesome pumpfest & probably even better than Empire.

third or fourth RP attempt. didn't feel my strongest go, kept not properly latching left handholds, but having an extra jug pointed out to me at the top was somewhat helpful!

Linked into empire but ran out of energy after the third bolt.

Absolutely ace. The gaston move is brilliant.

Cool, birthday send! Better than Empire in my opinion. Very pumpy for me, almost fell off at the top! Now for a 7c...

Hard start, first couple of moves are easy to get clips in then about 3 hard moves to catch a ride with Empire which feels somewhat harder from this approach...'get your pump on!'

Not as good as empire as the climbing is a bit unbalanced. Still very worthwhile

Kept falling off the crux of empire then new beta emerged, good variation!

Ellis Butler-Barker 10/Aug/13 Lead rpt

Did this to practice placing trad gear along the way. So pumped

Second redpoint. Not Just Empire is the better variation in my opinion.

with Ed, Jamie Paffery, Lewis Richardson
Laurence Everitt 09/Jun/13 Lead β

I agree that this is better than the original, more people should try this.

Ramon Marin 09/Jun/13 Lead β

A better start to Empire of the Sun, just a bit harder.

Came up with a reasonable sequence, got to the jams on empire original on my second RP. Need to put in a few more sessions.
