The Independent Route E7 6b
[Line of Independent Route (E7 6b). Purely for reference, dont vote on it please, 2 kb]Solo. Thin slab with a mono without recourse to holds on neighbouring routes. Requires the steeliest of nerves and the best in stickability. Much harder for vertically challenged, i.e. sub 6 foot one-ers!

The start was near impossible with all the polish. Some incredible moves further up though: double side pull to two finger crip, cross over with other hand, high heel hook and cut loose to pull up and mantle - incredible! Felt like such a boss!

Didn't finish it but really enjoyed working it. Would like to go back and try again with Mr Neads.

partner told me to try, took me a while to figure it out with a few falls, not sure if i would ever want to lead this it would be scary.

A great test of nerve and faith in friction.

Top roped this countless times, still to much of a puff to lead it!
