Homegrown 8a+
[Rupert Working 'Homegrown' 8a+, Cheddar., 3 kb]The Remnant.
Hard moves off the ground lead to a powerful move into an undercut, then another powerful long move to a jug. Easier to finish but still tricky.

Ticklists: Cheddar Eight's, Top 10 hard Bristol Ticks, South West 8's.

Hard getting into and out off the big undercut.

Linked to the under cut move, linked from under cuts to top, and did the hard move a number of times, very greasy today.

Was informed by locals last year that from the undercut, Homegrown stepped right into Wrist Business, shared a couple of moves with that route then went back left- so that's what I did. It didn't seem very satisfying; it felt like Homegrown should be more independent and not just a tricky start to Wrist Business. So this year I did it properly- straight up from the undercut. It's not perfect in that it still shares a hold (inevitable, with routes so tightly packed), but it is, at least, a harder, independent sequence. And it's proper 8a+ too, and not a cop out. I assume (but I don't know this for certain) that the first ascent went this way.

Should have got the onsight but a small snail had decided to make its home in a crucial pocket meaning that a clean ascent on the day would have been almost impossible.

Excellent route, such good moves and surprisingly pumpy for a short route.

4th session. Great route, found the bottom crux desperate and the next bit not too bad. The good press in top groove won't last much longer!
