[Tide Rising, 7b+, Brean Down, 2 kb]Hard and fingery wall-climbing that is at the top of the grade. Start just right of the diagonal crack of Chepito. 20m. Take the wall to the break and the high first bolt. Make some fingery moves to larger holds and then climb with increasing difficulty to a final easing on the top wall. © ROCKFAX
Generally thought to be F7c now

_m.cox_ - Lead rpt - 16/Feb/14 with Al Sarhan, Ben West

First 7b+, first go after placing the draws, third overall. A wicked route with some great moves that suits my style nicely. Psyched for more Brean!

First 7b+! Second attempt of the day.
Nick Russell - Lead RP - 22/Nov/13 with Alex Winter

Third or fourth go of the day I think. Great weather, but a bit chilly. Key to success was a Rocky-style training montage down the beach to warm up.
Alex Winter - Lead RP - 22/Nov/13 with Nick

Hidden - Lead RP - 17/Nov/13

Nearly. Next session hopefully.
DorsetGareth - Lead dog - 17/Nov/13 with remus

One top-rope and then a modest lead attempt. Got it in two halves. Should go I reckon.
Alex Winter - Lead dog - 14/Nov/13 with Nick

Got it all figured out now. 5 goes on lead, of which the last 2 were serious redpoints. Came off the crux both times. Clip above the crux (bolt 4) is still problematic, may have to run it out.

Awesome, tried 3 years ago and had to project it hard, falling on the top section after the crux on two occasions. Went back and dogged it once, then cruised it first redpoint. Some gains have been made!

1st go today, great route. Took me longer than I hoped it would
tommytuffa - Lead RP - 02/Dec/12 with ollie b

Very good climbing with a distinct crux, slight shame that you seem to go on to Pearl Harbour almost low down. Ill so not up for the lead this time, will need to come back for this.

Jon_Warner - Lead dog - 06/Feb/11 with Tom

Clean this time!!! Phew...Hold loss (Jimmy) is just at first crux - apparently just after heel hook...? Great climb which deserves more attention in my opinion! Jan 2 degrees everywhere - felt more like 25 degrees at Brean - awesome sun trap!

1st redpoint today. Have tried in the past but today was the first time I tried it with a mind of actually doing it. Felt pretty easy for 7c. Probably top end 7b+. Don't think the quality is outstanding, bit too close to the 7a on the left.
