The testpiece of the sport routes at Brean Down and one of Somerset's most difficult undertakings. Start on the raised ledges just left of the gearing-up block.Climb the fingery brown wall to the mid-height break, step right and climb the fierce upper wall. © Rockfax
UKC Logbook Description
Continues direct where Storm Warning escapes right into Chulilla. The first and second ascentionists (both short and strong) thought 8a+. Maybe the (two, maybe five) next ascentionists will simply take the tick!

A bit of a seige, inflicted a lot of flappers and took a long time to get this done despite linking both sections first session. Really enjoyable journey, first 8a+ (this might be 8b in Kalymnos but it'd be soft 8a+ at Anstey's... )
Finally a quiet day and good conditions. Felt fairly steady when I sacked off the crap beta I was using and just pulled on the savage crimp!
after lots of work! probably 8a+, conditions make a massive difference
Very nice climbing and lots of jumping. Might as well be 9b for me with the usual sequence, can't even pull onto the holds!

Just made it before my BIG birthday!! Plenty of evening sessions over the summer (most a complete waste of time because of the heat), but today was perfect despite all the rain in Bristol.
2nd Redpoint after a dog. Bout 4th session on this in 18 months

8a+ but climbs very well

Pleased to get this. Used completely different (and potentially harder) sequence on small pinches all through the upper section because conditions were too bad to hold the crimps. Sweet!

The Topping has finally given in, not before inflicting two more war wounds. Hard and intense, with some painful holds, which limits attempts and adds to the difficulty.. A new PB and really pleased to get this local hard classic done. Beautiful sunshine and perfect conditions today. Brean is such a good winter venue..
Gona need to get stronger on small crimps most moves done
2nd short session on it, other was 4 months ago. Still not done all moves between 6th & 7th clip.
A very unexpected red-point, Starting with one finger taped due to a split and then splitting another finger tip at the crux but some how managing to push on through a wet top to the chains.
