Rockfax Description
A short bouldery start gets you going on this one. Start just right of the large block.
The bouldery lower wall gains a good break. Finish up the easier corner above. © Rockfax

It went ok once I had the start figured out! Several goes tweaking beta low down then nearly dropped the easy upper half on the RP.

Nick Russell 13/Dec/14 Lead dog

I think I have a sequence now, just a case of putting it all together.

Nick Russell 05/Dec/14 TR dog

oof, tough start. Maybe if I come back to it fresh I'll be able to do some of the moves.

remus 26/Oct/14 Lead RP

Tried it once a year or two ago. Had a bit of a mediocre first go this time then spotted the sly drop knee and got it without too much hassle second go.

Michelle W 18/Oct/14 Lead RP

Second go :)

3 goes to the chain, although I worked the first bit quite a lot. This is definitely one to bring a clip stick for - really didn't enjoy sketching up to the first bolt to get it clipped.

Strenny and shortlived! Pretty cool route.

All the moves sorted... will make for an interesting lead

2nd go, a lot nicer than I thought it would be.

with Sadact
remus 06/Oct/13 Lead dnf

Watched Tom and Becca give it a go then put in a good burn on the flash. Got most of the way through the hard section, just a couple more moves to go but had run out of beans. Made a few silly foot mistakes which could easily be fixed, would definitely go.

Bates 11/Sep/13 Lead RP

Awesome route. Very powerful start, still work to do and nice climbing after the break.

holister 08/Sep/13 Lead RP

great route, powerful start and then easier top section but still no push over.

Kind of agree with the other comments here... Nice climb once you get over the horrible start.

In a day (with a bit of help working it out). I did enjoy telling everyone how my day was that evening in the tobacco factory, even if I did have to yell: BREAN. SEVEN BEE PLUS. THE ONE RIGHT OF CHULILLA
