[Everyday Lives of Ordinary People, 3 kb]Takes the wall and shallow groove 5m right of the prominant overhanging crackline of Fossil. The start is very fingery and powerful whilst the upper groove eases, but is still tough and sequency. Luckily there is a good shakeout at half height.

Jim Brooke - Lead dnf - 18/Apr/14

Had heard this was soft (people missing the hard moves at the end of the boulder prob by going out right?), but actually found it pretty hard. Took a while to work out the boulder start but eventually did this through to the rest, then from the rest to the top. Wasn't getting that much back on the rest and the top is very droppable...

Linked a few bits together.
DorsetGareth - TR dog - 08/Sep/13 with Andy Wiseman

Took a couple of sessions to learn the tricky bottom and top sections and dial the moves. Went surprisingly smoothly in the end. Some great sequences.
Dan Savory - Lead RP - 01/Sep/13 with Dan Webber, Jason Parker

Took a few goes to remember the moves but felt not to bad in the end

Ellis Butler-Barker - Lead RP - 11/Aug/13 with Adam

Fell on the last move. 7c-in-a-day is taking longer than it should! Apologies to all the worried tourists at my angered screaming.

Nice line, tried it a few times a couple of weeks ago but must have been tired cos it went down really smoothly this time.

Second go. Should have flashed. probably 7b+

boulder problem coming together. Linked from ground to the letterbox slot on best go. Some micro-beta made it feel a bit easier. Next time need to work the top out.
Quiddity - Lead dnf - 05/Mar/12 with AJM, Ali, Curious Yellow

3 Names - TR dnf - 30/Nov/11 with Nick

working the boulder problem. done all the moves to the jug, with a link to the crimp from the ground.
Quiddity - TR dnf - 30/Nov/11 with Mac and Ally

First 7c! 3 evenings, 1 day, then second red point of the second day. 9th red point in the end. Unlike most people I found a fairly steady way of doing the start, most of my falls were from by the chains. Whilst it's a popular route to slate I thought it had excellent moves on it, nicely sustained and thoroughly enjoyable.
AJM - Lead RP - 09/Sep/11 with Hazel R, Charles Hubbard

bigie bob - Lead RP - 07/Sep/11

Totally debilitating. Some progress.
Chubbard - TR dog - 01/Sep/11 with AJM

billb - Lead RP - Sep/11

Hard start. Not too bad when you have it all sorted out! Was very surprised to get it yesterday :)
Wendy - Lead RP - 21/Aug/11 with Tom Ball

Hidden - Lead RP - 15/Aug/11

Bring it on!! First 7c. About 6 sessions over a month. Woodies at TCA and daily core exercises eventually paid off. Brutal crux just kept getting easier every session.
Tomar - Lead RP - 11/Aug/11 with Harry

Ramon Marin - Lead RP - 31/Jul/11 with ciaran tracey

would be a nice softish 7b+ without the horrid, hard start.
James Marshall - Lead RP - 25/Jul/11

1st time on a 7c. To my surprise I found I can do all the moves.
Tomar - Lead dog - 12/Jul/11

Absolutely cruised today, need to try something harder, great route!
BenNorman - Lead RP - 30/Jun/11

Fell off 3rd last move off the bulge three times before discovering massive hidden pocket and continuing to fall off there a further 2 times fiddling with the pocket, idiot! Not even that bad.

first 7c whoop
brices - Lead RP - 04/Sep/10

worked on t/r then climbed first go. nice climbing on pockets
grey wolf - Lead RP - 15/Aug/10

Sequence of powerful, bouldery moves going direct past the 1st bolt (the big pinch out on the right i don't think can be in at this grade), then great climbing to the top on surprisingly good holds.
Dan Jenkin - Lead RP - 12/Aug/10 with James Marshall

Done in three parts but first boulder problem to the good holds! Also a right hand flake has broken off on the upper wall creating a second crux that is probably harder than the first, worth an upgrade? Must be harder!

Not dogged, but not quite a redpoint as I grabbed the quickdraw in the belay.
Paul Robertson - Lead - 17/Oct/09 with Oli

Couldn't do the start, but linked it from the 2nd bolt to the top.
