A highly technical wall with a high fluttery finish.
Since the demise of a pebble opinions on grade are split between 7B+ and 7C but the quality has never been questioned.

Mega psyched to get this. Eventually unlocked with the help of some completely different beta. Great problem - felt nails every go except the final one where it felt easy.

Progress - hit the top side-pull. Trick was to pull really hard with high left toe to get the crimp solid (then drop it back down again for next move).

BenNorman 23/Feb/13 Sent x

At last, used the pebble out left for move to third sidepull, much easier. So Damn Good!

Back for the third session in three days and pretty sure I could do it. However I still got pumped trying to do the bit above the jug and had to jump off. Had a good rest and dispatched it the next go with no pump in sight, guess my arms just weren't warmed up. A fantastic climb with an exciting finish.
