Threadbare** 7c+
[Nick Saunders on Threadbare LH, 3 kb]21m.

Rockfax Description
The narrow slanting corner and leaning wall right of Mayday gives some exceptional climbing on a tight line. Start just right of the base of the wide central groove of Mayday.
Climb the wall right of the bolts to a point where a long stride left can be made into the base of the narrow stepped corner. Climb the corner, then move back left to good holds before climbing directly to the top via some fingery and then powerful moves. Can be started by moving in from Mayday at 7b+. © ROCKFAX

UKC Logbook Description
Starting up Thread Flintstone reduces the grade. The line is tight but often the pocket is used from the right, to gain the finger crack.

Didn't really give it enough effort to even call a good working attempt. Did most of the moves, but not the stride left. That move at the top would be a heartbreaker on the RP!

I had no expectation today or no real intrest to jump on this route or even send it after my last session; battled through a virus whilst projecting. What a line! I am so happy to have got it on my 2nd attempt overall. Best route at the crag. Something harder next...

Worked the lower moves until wired. Inspired by this line. Super psyched.

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.

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.

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.

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 day perhaps.
