The leaning pocketed arete is superb. Jump start at this grade. The sit-start is f7C+ and there is even a f8A version if you avoid using the foot block. © Rockfax

should have flashed but tried to warm up on it and cold fingers stopped me...Amazing climb though.

Another frustratingly close session. Now have everything wired apart from reaching the top move. I think a sneaky move of my right foot should sort things out.
From standing so more 7b I think.

Found the French start very on-off. Got through it a few times but was nowhere near topping out. Then the sharp edge ate my skin! Sacked it before I ruined the rest of the day. Would like to come back for this.

Another failed session

Good climb. No jump start but pulled on from a higher hold than you're meant to?
with a jump start, will go back for standing start.
Love this problem.
Really cool, played on the business boulder and the pebble :)

Twice, really easy when you've got it wired. Topped it out too.

Hard last move!
Such a sharp pebble!
So chuffed to tick this. Felt hard and scary but then I don't feel I'm really back at 7a+ yet so it should feel hard.:D

Didn't find this that hard, just suited me I think. Want to do it again without pads for the E5 tick.

Alright when it cooled down, cool but sharp, hard 7a+
First 7a+! Took me about 30 mins - psyched!
nice, found it hard.
Found it okay once sussed. Felt harder than 7a+ though.
Found the first move really hard to stick. The rest looks cool though.

after trying this last weekend and coming way too close, it felt brilliant to get it quickly and easily. Got the beat totally wired. Brilliant problem! Too short if anything, would love more moves. From watching lots of people trying different beta, i can confidently say this is definitely harder for those much below 6' or with short arms. Sequence is easier with just enough reach, simpler.
Did it again because it was wired and i wanted to see if i could do it easily. Spectacularly, it felt like i did. Topped out in the ice this time instead of jumping off from the jugs, because it felt so good!
Came off the last move a few times, tape on several bloodied tips from throwing myself at it for a fair while perfecting a sequence. Up to the last move is now a path, if i wasn't wrecked by the time i got there i would have popped the last inch to the top. Next time, there is no way it is getting away. What a brilliant problem! Magic. We actually had to tape a fleece glove to the arete, so the dripping water was diverted off the footholds!
Had managed this a few years ago but climbing in from the right as couldn't do the jump. Didn't quite feel the way. Always wanted to climb it with the pop jump start so pleased to do it today. Really good moves.
found a great sequence, first 7A+

From the standing start.
Sorted the first half.
Soft. Should have flashed... Didn't commit to last move.

Look blooming ages to work out a sequence that worked for me. Felt very hard in the sun.
About as good as it gets. Rpt.
|Andrew Barker||05/Dec/09||Sent x||
Tried it earlier in the year and struggled. Felt much easier today. A classy problem.
Good problem, good flash...
E5 6c great grade ha! Like it! Wicked problem. Fell off from the jug at top on my penultimate go.
