Really good fun! My first 7a onsight, probably soft, very easy to read: every move is exactly what it looks like from the ground. It just gets steeper as you go up! (Slightly disappointed that I didn't have to cut loose at any point.)Nick Russell - Lead O/S - 23/Oct/13
Ground up twice and couldn't clip the top bolt. Got it on the third go. Great line big moves.

dynoed to a sloper instead of the jug at the end first try, went easily second go. I keep trying to warm up on harder routes and falling off. Not more than 6c+?! Did it later in my trainers to get the draws back and it still felt straightforward. I suppose if you've got the reach and bicep power on this one you dont need anything else...

lojant - Lead dog - 15/Oct/11 with Pawel Gregorczyk
I effectively flashed this although some people might debate otherwise. Hence I led it again straight afterwards just to shut up any ethic critics.
To be honest its probably only 6c+ as its at least 2 maybe 3 whole grades easier than Chalked Up Mutant Woodlouse which is solid 7a+. Although no one seems to object too much about the grade so for the time being I'm going to take the 7a tick.
