Start at a belay bolt just left of the cave, confusing and interesting climbing on easy ground leads to a manic and difficult 5-slap finish. Tough to onsight and hard for the grade!

Tomar - Lead RP - 20/Aug/13 with Nick

Fun climbing to a boulder problem. Missed the horrible sloper on the right and did a big move to the hold under roof

This was a tough one in the heat! Very close to the send I found new more static beta that wasn't as friction dependent. Fantastic route. Super stiff 7b+

Loved the technicality of the crux.

1st go today, no warm up putting draws in! 7b+
Tris.w - Lead RP - 24/Jul/11 with archie

2 goes today. Good moves again. That crimp makes all the difference. Felt solid 7b+ to me
mark_wellin - Lead dog - 03/Jul/11

Second redpoint, after two bolt to bolt goes working out the moves. Used the crimp on the crux. Initially i thought it felt hard and maybe 7c, but if I can do it in a day it is probably not. Absolutely loved the route though, never easy it builds up to a satisfying climax just before the chains.

couldnt to the normal way used a crimp that made it lots easyer not hard 7b+

Really enjoyed this, took some tim to properly work it out today and did the top even when very tired, hopefully will go next time once ive wired the start, maybe 7c?

Quick play to work out moves, harder than house burning down but not so much my style, still very good with a surprisingly pumpy start
BenNorman - 2nd dog - 04/Jul/10

James Marshall - Lead rpt - Jul/10

Hard at 7b+, awsemone moves moves at the top. Even when you've got it wired if you don't have enough in the tank you'll be off!
