Tried this once start of the week... came back today... tried it and failed.... got it clean and smooth on the second attempt. My first 7a and it has a plus :-) OK... may be given low in the grade, but I'll take that!

came off at the top on the onsight missing a key hold, 2nd time all went fine after watching dan cruise through the flash!
James S - Lead RP - 11/May/15 with dan hb, dan

Got through the strenuous first section clean… got too stretched out higher up and took a rest.. then working out final moves took a 2nd rest… must come back and lead it clean as it's all doable for me!

Sport climbing is fun! First onsight at the grade. Took a few power grunts at the top to hang on. Must be soft in the grade, ~I got up it! 3 stars as sport climbing goes?

My first onsight at the grade! I had to try pretty hard on a couple of sections, but it has good rests.

Fantastic route - mainly technical face climbing and extremely well bolted. Clean to penultimate clip - will be back in near future!
TomJ - Lead dog - 14/Sep/14 with DanC

felt ridiculously long moves at the top, probably doing it wrong

Bit eliminate at the start, otherwise good route. A few tricky sections with good rests in between. Easy 7a+.

explodingsprouts - TR dog - 07/Apr/11 with Eric

2nd go. Loose little hold above roof gives cause for thought. Easier for the tall I reckon.

Yet another great route on Burmese wall. Worked out and linked all the hard moves at the top. It's definetely going to happen. I'll be back in September!
Tomar - Lead dog - 30/Jun/10 with "Brosky"

Awesome route. Worthy of more stars. Not too polished. Great technical moves going over the roof.
