Premonition >>
[Sport Climbing, 3 kb]A beautiful wall pitch that gradually picks its way up the central face and culminates in a technical finish. Start at a right to left sloping ramp, 5m right of the start of Living Dead. 25m. Take the straightforward gangway to a sloping ledge at 9m. Climb the steep wall above and slightly right on small positive holds past a slim overlap to a good ledge (small cam optional). Move up the steepening wall on diminishing holds to the final bolt, from where a very thin move gains a good hold and ledge just above, lower-off on the left. The top of the cliff can be gained via a short HVS 5a pitch. © ROCKFAX
Climb easily to a ledge at about 8m. Climb past 3 bolts on the lower wall to a good break (old peg). Move up easily to good holds and a bolt. From here a sequence of about 10 moves leads with increasing difficulty to jugs, a ledge, and a two-bolt belay on the left

Ist redpoint try in the rain. Chossy start, high first bolt, snappy holds on the crux at the top, awkwardly placed belay. But a good route nonetheless.

Fairly straightforward to the penultimate bolt it then steepens and there is a tough short sequence to the top.

Pippa - Lead RP - 11/Jun/11 with Richard

Got it on my 3rd visit. My first ever clean 7b! Really nice and epic route, felt like a real inner journey and all that.
Tomar - Lead RP - 09/Jan/11 with Oliver Beesley

2nd go today. Have tried before a year or 2 ago. Brilliant route, not quite as good as the route to the left and a little easier.
