Return of the Gunfighter*** 7c
[Claire Durant (bottom right hand corner) Flashing the classic Cheddar test piece 'Return of the Gunfighter' 7c, 3 kb]Start just left of the corner. Follow a line of staples to a junction with SSB and follow that route to a semi-rest in the corner. Gain the flake above and swing right along its top. Struggle on up and over the final roof to a resting place. Push on up the headwall to an abseil station.

Amazing climbing. Felt pretty spicy on the top slab as I was "fairly" pumped up there. Very happy to onsight.

One of the very best routes in cheddar brilliantly involved all the way to the chains

2nd go. Great route

Finally. Best part of 4-days worth of effort but worth it. Best route I've ever done at the grade - feels very powerful at first but full of hidden rests & sneaky sequences.
quiffhanger - Lead RP - 27/Nov/11

After a mammoth effort, fell of easy ground 3 moves from the end when a foothold crumbled! Gutted.

I'll give myself 7c- for because I fell from the 3rd clip, lowered and then did the route from there. Loverly

What a climb ! I can't believe that there could be a better 7c in the country. Physical, then mental battle.
