It has an independent start but it is better to start up Thread Flintstone. A new start on the left makes the grade 7b+. © ROCKFAX
Starting up Thread Flintstone reduces the grade.

Rory Bascombe - Lead dog - 13/Sep/14 with Dad

A popular day to be at TorBryan! Good first session - got all the moves, and linked decent sections on top rope. Made some errors on lead, and left exhausted. Inspired to get back on it, great route.
DorsetGareth - Lead dog - 24/Aug/14 with Andy Wiseman

Not that much harder than the LH, despite the harder moves.

All moves done, it's on!! Long legs or high flexibility required.

First redpoint, great route! Great day, Crosstown Traffic, Red Thunder, Yabba Dabba, Threadbare LH, Threadbare and the Thunder Bear!
Ellis Butler-Barker - Lead RP - 12/Aug/13 with Nick

Awesome route, top is so droppable, especially for me with no endurance, fell off the top 1st RP, held it together on the 2nd, slapping wildly! Dead chuffed

Ramon Marin - Lead RP - 01/Sep/12 with viki harvey

Very memorable. Blew the top sequence 2nd go. 3rd go scraped through the first crux. Torrential rain started whilst recovering on the shakeout. Gave it 110% - skipped the final clip and went big to a pretty gripping finish in the wet.
quiffhanger - Lead RP - 27/Aug/12 with Jacob

Did it thrice, good resistance training.

6th Redpoint. Using the correct start, not the easier Thread Flintstone start.
El3ctroFuzz - Lead - 28/Jul/12 with Paul Roberts, Mike Cleverdon

Nice climbing with a very droppable top ! Did first
Gavinsymonds - 20/May/12

Moves felt easy but a little too tired to link. Really good except start spoiled by being so close to Thread Flinstone. Top pinch seeping: required long hard deadpoint from undercling to avoid it.

About bloody time! Felt steady today and cleaning the top crimps helped - these can get quite chalky. A top route, hard but do-able.

Awesome route, my first 7c+!
JeromeT - Lead RP - 25/Sep/09

bloody hell! way to hard for me at the moment, though josh did well and linked most of it. i got stuck setting up for the lower crux- kept peeling off before i could properly get into the finger lock before the step across.one day perhaps.
