Right-Hand Man 8a
[James on Right-hand Man, 3 kb]The Remnant. Climb into the cave and bridge up to the tufa and a thread. Make moves up and right across the bulge using the large sidepulls to crimps on the face. More big moves on positive holds up and left lead to a jug on the right. Finish more easily.

Fell off after the rest, one move before the big slot/ jugs due to numb fingers.

Well happy to get this in a few after work sessions. Fell off the top first go today, then the bottom, then nailed it! Quality sequence that barely goes and keeps you going right to the top.

Feels like it will go soon, just need some cooler temps.

tom106 - Lead RP - 21/Jun/14 with charlotte, Luke H

Tried the moves, came down and then did it first go. Found it pretty hard, although I imagine better conditions would've made it easier.
Ellis Butler-Barker - Lead RP - 20/Jun/14 with JackMac

Made some useful links but those crimps are so damn sharp!
Garrouli - Lead dog - 03/Jun/14 with Matt Williams

Managed all the moves, need to link them now.

2nd redpoint of the day. Just as well: not sure if my fingers would have handled any more abuse on those filthy crimps.
quiffhanger - Lead RP - 19/May/12

Felt hard working it but on the redpoint it felt ok
PeterDawson - Lead RP - 12/May/12

Will def go when it's dry. Figured the moves and linked all the way through the crux to the easy top. V nice tech sequences.
quiffhanger - Lead dog - 06/May/12

had a couple of burns on this. refined beta will help.
Martin Cleaver - Lead dog - 31/Mar/12 with Dan Gibson

Hidden - TR dnf - 03/Mar/12

More talent, beta or strength required. Probably all three.

1st redpoint of 2nd session. been on my list for a while and it didn't disappoint, great route with really varied moves.
Dan Jenkin - Lead RP - 15/Jul/11 with James Marshall

First time on the route - project time. First clip is stupidly high - clip-stick! Quite hard immediately after bridging beginning - will be hard to clip 4th bolt - 2 goes on first 3 bolts...and so it begins!

Some people seem to think this is easy. Felt like proper 8a to me. Wildly different sequences possible depending on how tall you are.
