Skullduggery 7a+
[Jason Williams on 'Skullduggery' F7a+/b, The Remnant, Cheddar., 3 kb]Retrobolted. Start up a steep rib to reach a resting place. Make technical moves left of the bolts into the top groove with good finger pockets, and to the lower off (7b). Or move right and slap up a rib on the right (7a), poor, off route, bolts hard to clip.

The first bolt is missing, so a clipstick is recommended for the cautious

Went second go today. A bit damp in the pockets at the top but that wasn't the main difficulty.
Nick Russell - Lead RP - 19/Oct/14

Stick clipped the high first clip. The left hand line feels about right at 7b. Should be a quick tick next time I'm around. Good route.

Feels so unfair - was on the good pocket and slopey hold in top groove (on 7b variant) on the onsight, couple of moves from the top, when a foothold broke off on me, otherwise think it would have gone. tried it again right at the end of the day but was just so fatigued! Never mind
