Bullworker** 7c

Rockfax Description
Butch stuff, and a touch reachy with it. Start at a small corner 3m right of the large block.
The overhanging, narrow corner is followed to a good break and a move left, from where a long, powerful move accesses still steep ground, though with more positive holds. © ROCKFAX

UKC Logbook Description
Start up a left facing corner and use its right arete to reach a break. step left and make powerful moves through the bulge above on layaways, eventually reaching finger-jugs and an easier finish

Amazing what difference a few beta tweaks can make! Didn't get everything right until the successful (fourth?) attempt, then it felt steady. Hard to grade in light of this. The lower wall is easy and there's a full rest (I really could get everything back at that kneebar) just before the crux. When unlocked the crux felt fine, and it's only 3 hand movements anyway.

Four times up today. Took me ages to remember how to do it. Pretty convinced it will go now.

I think I can do the crux with the gaston beta (or my version of it, not sure what the standard method is). I think I did all but about half a move today. Also found the kneebar at the break :)

Just feeling the holds. Seems the hard section is very short-lived.

sacked in the gaston way as it was way too painful. did it the bullworker way and went pretty easily.

Used the gaston method through the crux and skipped the big pinch. A good route.

Bouldering on a rope describes it best

the middle crux feels desperately hard. Can only just make span

Surprised to get this first go; couldn't remember the sequence.

Should have flashed. 2nd go.
El3ctroFuzz - 11/Oct/13 with Elaine Budden

Just one hard move. But the move felt too hard for me...
Jon_Warner - Lead dog - 21/Sep/13 with Jenni

Mostly flash except the crux which I had done before so 1st redpoint attempt. Nice route

Glad to have finally climbed this. It was a funny route for me as I find the crux on this as hard as the crux on brean topping, although the hard section is a lot more short lived!

I think I flashed this after Adam showed me the beta, but I'm not entirely sure as Brean is a bit of a climbing gym for me and don't really pay attention to the sends. Anyways, I logged it as RP just in case my memory is failing me ;)
Ramon Marin - Lead rpt - 11/Mar/12 with adam brown

3rd go. Only 2 hard moves really - now solved so I can get on the Milky Bar Kid :)

The left hand side pull setting up for the crux has come off recently making this a lot harder. Now definitely solid 7c.

F6c to a stopper move, then F7a to the top.
Paul Robertson - Lead dog - 08/Apr/10 with John Warner

Compared to other routes here there is no way this is 7c. Soft 7b/7b+. One fairly hard move thats a bit on off. The rest is a path. Nice enough but not 2 stars. Big loose jug at the top which is best too avoid, and only one bolt to lower off on, (and a hole where presumably the other on used to be).

_m.cox_ - Lead RP - Jan/09 with Robyn Nelson

The good left hand side pull that you use to set up for the move to the next left hand side pull has broken off. This is now a pretty hard move. The route is probably now very bouldery 7c+
Ged Desforges - 2009

Paul Robertson - Lead dnf - 15/Jul/08 with Paz

Thankfully I wasn't too tired from Bourton the previous night and it just needed finishing off. I'd say it's 7b+ but I want the tick and tell myself it's unusual for 7b+s to take me longer than 2 days.
Paz - Lead RP - 18/Jun/06 with PS

Started off the day not being able to dog the crux (aided it to put clips in) then with a bit of thought (and chalk) was falling off easy ground (again) above the crux -reach-(!), going for the redpoint. I pulled the top jug off, but I think it's actually easier without it.
Paz - Lead dog - 16/Jun/06 with AB

Was very annoyed after falling off trying to jump/swap my feet, immediately after the crux slap.
