Cryogenics** 7a+
Start below the arch. Move up to a rest by the second bolt (quite hard to clip). Keep going straight up to a flat jug, then swing out right to sideholds by the third bolt. Motor on through the arch to an abseil station.

A good route, worth at least 2*. Second go after a pretty decent onsight attempt, lost my way a bit with the feet around bolt 3. All there, but not very visible. The second clip felt pretty tough, but there's an ok position to do it from.

Twatted myself by falling off by the 3rd bolt on the flash. Top tip, get belayer to stand well left so you miss the rope. Or read the description and use all the holds.

Put the draws in then got it first RP. Probably 2-3 goes on top rope the week before.

Good progress for first session. Did all moves and good sequence for crux.

Will lead but what I worked out for clips either felt run out or damn tough
Cheese Monkey - TR RP - 23/Jul/14 with Eric

Was tempted to try on lead but need to get a sequence for 3rd clip sorted 1st
Cheese Monkey - TR dog - 21/Jul/14 with Eric

3rd go for me to learn. It's nice. Once I had beta, I breezed it in the rain but nearly slipped above the roof as water was running hard. I think a crucial hold for clip 3 might break soon. No hard clips once you have correct foot holds but I sketched out a bit on first try. What flat jug? I guess it broke.
J1_TOV - Lead RP - 26/Jun/14

The flat lay back to the left of the second bolt is loose. Very committing moves! Felt shakier at the second bolt than the third. The third is a bit far away but there's a good hold to the left of it. Great thuggy moves from there to the top!

really cool climb took a couple of sessions
Samworkman1989 - Lead RP - 2014

Worthwile with the 3rd clip extended. Read the description in the guide and.. no thanks... I can think of more impressive ways of breaking my legs than a 15m sport route.

1st RP after putting the clips up and one top rope. Difficult to insight.
davidliu - Lead RP - 09/Dec/12 with Pierce Ferris, Adrian Perera

My first 7a+. Dogged it to put the draws in and work a sequence, then Ralph had a go on top-rope, then I top-roped it to get my sequence wired - then got it first red-point attempt. Really chuffed. Excellent technical and sequencey climbing and then that burly pull over the roof!

Hidden - TR dog - 24/Jul/12

Wimped out the first two tries, downclimbed and lowered off. Very good climb just wish there was an extra bolt (or that the one there was a metre further left)!

2nd go, couldn't see (sun in the eyes) and went past a good crimp to a nothing and fell off :(

nice and technical 3rd clip is fine if you look at your feet not hands

Took a big wanger when my feet poped off whilst i was pulling rope up to clip the 4th bolt. 2nd bolt is run out and hard to clip. Felt more like 7b to me!

Wendy - Lead RP - 05/Aug/10 with Tom Ball

Tough to read sequence (for me). Linked most of it - found it nails and very uninviting 3rd clip! Roof was great fun though. And pumpy.
DrGav - Lead dog - 30/Jul/10 with Wendy

Tried once about a year ago, second go today. Nice route, technical then a bit pumpy. 7a+

1st RP. Worth going over the roof. Two sequences (high and low) possible on the `runout', both about the same with the top one probably the more exciting (I went low).
