A hard lower wall is the prelude to difficult finger locking in the overhanging crack. A hard dyno leads to a (now) fairly straightforward mantle. Soft 8a

Ticked! 9th go...fell on the top two moves 6 times...I've been told to take 8a, so I am! Harder than liquid crystal.

Really powerful on hard to seat fingerlocks good though feels closer to 8a than 7c+ haven't done it though so thoughts may change.

2nd working session - hard at first, then remembered beta. Foot popped going up to last move...this should go soon!
rubben - Lead - 20/Nov/11 with Marcus O'Leary

Worked the route - can do all the moves - and link it with one rest...will definitely leave penultimate clip free as couldn't clip it...hard top sequence for sure - 1 star route - should get within a few more tries...then leaving the wave!

Felt harder in rockboots than in trainers, while actually trying the moves.

If you're going to try a 7c+/8a in trainers anyway then this one's a good one.
