Coronary Country (original start)*** E7 6b
[Dave onsighting Coronary County, 2 kb]35m. Another fine wall climb with great climbing and a sequency crux by the pegs. The fixed gear can be backed up with wires but the route is still a bold undertaking. High in the grade. Incorrectly described in West Country Climbs! The original line climbs up at the first spike NOT the second (Fay)spike.

round two armed with twin ropes. shouted takes pumped out of my mind above the pegs(with fresh tat). worked crux above to the next break. no particularly good gear but ok to rest on, then went exploring up. bad rock and not much kit. in the end bailed all the way along a break to reach the Fay lower off felling traumatised. I reckon this is definitely E7 with the original start(which is a bit more dangerous), if the tat on the pegs is ok, and you get the wires, in then the crux is safe but its not piss and its really jumpy to get all the kit in. An impressive one for people that have onsighted it.

Hard around the crux, and suspect rock in places, make the whole thing a pretty big undertaking.

Ground-up. Tried on the Monday with the RF start, got pumped and useless by top peg (looks shit). Lowered off. Returned on Wednesday after a tiring days bouldering and assault coursing, but armed with knowledge of this start. Went ok this time, tricky, reachy crux with a lot of hard climbing (sustained 5c/6a) either side.

Attempted - three long falls onto top peg. High point reaching better holds and a nut slot after hard thin sequqnce on side pulls. Too hot!
