Mega-classic. From the well chalked block at the back of the roof gain the chipped hold on the lip via the keel hold and some cunning footwork; slap to the obvious pocket and wobble up the slab to glory.

Been putting this off for a while. Crux is simply finding some usable beta.

3 proper sessions after dabbling in the past, took 2 sessions just to do the campus from the start (cos I'm weak!)

No real progress but no surprise. Move past the lip feels doable if I can get into the right foot into the correct position.

So happy to get this! Such an enticing problem, keeps letting you feel like you've almost got it wired, then throws you another difficulty to deal with. Probably V8 if you can pop for the pocket without having to cut loose first?

Psyched to get this done. I think 7b+ just because never done 7c and doubt i'd do it in a session
