Human Zoo** 7b+
[Jon Bentley on Human Zoo (7b+), Cheddar, 3 kb]Gain a ledge from the left, then follow a line of layaways until a traverse left leads to a shakeout. Blast through the steep section above on undercuts to reach some good holds and a final tricky move. Holds come and go, so the grade is a bit variable.

Finally ;-), it's safe to say I've never had to spend 5 sessions on a 7b+!!! Let's just keep it short and say this is easily 7c and not even close to the lower grade. Some really good moves, shame about the desperate small crimp in the middle... loved the moves on the upper wall! pleased to finally get this one :)

Good sustained route. The crucial tiny crimp over the roof looks solid for the time-being.

Not any time soon; couldn't do the undercut moves at the bulge. Last move felt desperate also.

Fell on undercuts in bulge on the onsight, not surprised cos that move is desperate - BIG lock off the undercut! Dogged to the top to clock sequence n got it next go, chuffed!
Mike Goldthorp - Lead RP - 24/Jul/10 with Laura Perry, alex mason

Worked all the moves. One RP go - got as far as the two big undercuts.
Paul Robertson - Lead dog - 21/Jul/10 with Guy Percival
