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!

Came off the last move!
JackMac - Lead dog - 09/Jul/15 with ferdia
2nd RP attempt. Lead with one fall after last draw! Quite pleased with this go.
ferdia - Lead dog - 07/Jul/15 with Jack
Linked into empire but ran out of energy after the third bolt.
JackMac - Lead dnf - 02/Jul/15 with ferdia
Absolutely ace. The gaston move is brilliant.
Joe Costello - Lead RP - 30/Jun/15
Probably better than empire. Felt quite a lot harder!

Rory Bascombe - Lead RP - 16/Sep/14 with Ed Gow-Smith
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!'
eddieclimb - Lead RP - 14/Jul/14 with Tom Rogers
Climbed after a long day. A good pumper.
Cailean Harker - Lead RP - 06/Jul/14 with Hannah

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

BenNorman - Lead dnf - 16/Aug/13
Did this to practice placing trad gear along the way. So pumped

Second redpoint. Not Just Empire is the better variation in my opinion.
Ellis Butler-Barker - Lead RP - 04/Jul/13 with Ed, Jamie Paffery, Lewis Richardson
I agree that this is better than the original, more people should try this.
Laurence Everitt - Lead β - 09/Jun/13 with Ross Cooper, Jay Kay, Alek Kumar
A better start to Empire of the Sun, just a bit harder.
Ramon Marin - Lead β - 09/Jun/13 with jerome mowat
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.
