Storm Warning*** 7c+

Rockfax Description
An excellent and much-attempted link-up. Start on the raised ledges just left of the gearing-up block.
Start up the fingery initial brown wall of Black Snake Moan and move right to finish up the pumpy top wall of Chulilla. © ROCKFAX

Sent 2nd red point attempt after working crux moves. Much better first half than Chulilla. Special thanks goes to black coffee and ibuprofen.

first try had already climbed both sections soft...
Luke Dawson - Lead RP - 23/Mar/14 with Charles Dawson

retro-flashed for training. Defo more in the 7c realm than 7c+
Ramon Marin - Lead β - 16/Mar/14 with viki harvey

Felt much closer. Still can't get 'the move'.
Jon_Warner - Lead dnf - 11/Jan/14 with Jenni

Hidden - Lead dog - 07/Dec/13

3rd session (had played on bits of it in years gone by too I guess), 4th redpoint. Fumbling about with the last clip nearly cost me dear! My gut says its likely 7c - you really can get everything back at that rest.
AJM - Lead RP - 19/Nov/13 with Remus Knowles

Hidden - Lead RP - 26/Oct/13

TR the bottom section a few times to get the sequence, one proper RP attempt but hadn't worked out the best rest and was still pumped going into the top half. Great moves and link up.

chrisscutt - Lead RP - 31/Aug/13 with ant, oly

Got to the break feeling fresh, foot slipped as I clipped from the undercut. I realised I could definitely do this route soon, just need to keep trying.

Done it today again for training and having a look at the 8a variation. Such a good route, and Brean was, as usual, the only place possible to climb in the whole south
Ramon Marin - Lead rpt - 23/Jun/13 with viki harvey

Fell off top jugs of chullila on first attempt,finally went 4th go ,super pumpy!
natalietanzer - Lead RP - 18/May/13

Joe Innes - Lead RP - 06/May/13

1st 7c+. Took longer and felt lot harder than any other 7c i have ever done. Soft maybe but still 7c+ imo. Really enjoyed projecting this

1st redpoint today with a makeshift harness for the belayer!
Tris.w - Lead RP - 27/Jan/12 with will boxen

Great route! Sent finally
billb - Lead RP - 27/Jan/12 with Tris West

Second go, though I'd already done both bits on other routes. Still - suggests it's probably easy for the grade.
quiffhanger - Lead RP - 07/Jan/12

maddy.c - Lead - 2012

Lovely moves all the way, and better than Chuillia.
Wendy - Lead RP - 31/Aug/11 with Tom Ball

1st redpoint. great start & brilliant moves on the headwall, shame that it isn't more continuous. avoided the second pocket as it didnt feel nice & used the little crimp next to it. 7c
Dan Jenkin - Lead RP - 30/Jun/11 with James Marshall

Ramon Marin - Lead rpt - 19/Jun/11 with ciaran tracey

Great, but think it's 7c
James Marshall - Lead RP - Mar/11

Cold cold cold, but fairly easy for grade.
Spacetourist - Lead RP - Jan/11 with Rosea

Cailean Harker - Lead RP - 2011

Second go, awesome, maybe a little soft?
colesy - Lead RP - 12/Dec/10

A bit soft. Tried the start last winter and couldn't touch it. Was pleased to be able to do it straight away this winter. Still took 3 visits of falling off the hard move on Chulilla though!
Richard Hall - Lead RP - 15/Nov/10 with Chris Savage

Hidden - TR dnf - 24/Apr/10

tried with numb hands but felt not to hard
Luke d - Lead dog - 07/Feb/10

Pretty hard going. Wet pockets spiced the upper wall up a bit.

Eventually did the sequence for the new version sans flake OK, but only in two, twice. Same grade I'd have thought.
Paz - Lead dog - 15/Jul/08 with PR

two sessions to suss moves, first redpoint attempt
Steve McQueen - Lead RP - 15/Aug/07

Instead of grabbing the last clip, this time I just let go.
Paz - Lead dog - 10/Apr/07 with TS2, MT

Arse. Got in 3 sections maybe. Pocket a touch damp.
Paz - Lead dog - 21/Feb/07 with AS

Got to last bolt and couldn't clip! Need to skip it really, then just not let go. Messed up getting into the crux pocket on second go and still did the crux but then faltered. Got on Chullila conscience though too, which was good.
Paz - Lead dog - 06/Dec/06 with AS, AB, FM

"It should go", he says. Got through crux and sort of stopped at the scary bit.
Paz - Lead dog - 30/Nov/06 with AS

Linked to the break again, and got the top of Chulilla sorted. Been given an easier sequence for both sections now. It should go.
Paz - Lead dog - 25/Nov/06 with AS

Got some decent beta and actually linked it as far as the break. Then fell off the first hard move (to the pocket) of the `sit-down' version after hauling up the extra clips. Why I had to go and do that I don't know, I've got to bloody climb the lot now.
Paz - Lead dog - 18/Oct/06 with AS

Belaying two successful redpoints didn't make it seem any easier, should've paid more attention on them. Neither did having redpointed Chulilla stop the top of it seeming harder than I remembered it.
