1 rest. Got a sequence. Just need to pull my finger out.

Went a lot quicker than expected. Definitely a plus grade harder than Hamish teddies though...

Marlinas Purse, strangely dry between two rivers running off the top!

Marlinas Purse. frustratingly fell off pulling into Purse Groove
sheppy - Lead dog - 21/May/14 with iain n jules
A good bit harder than Hamish Teds, worth 7c

Tried for marlinas purse but no joy, too many forgotten moves, all became clear but by then arms drained!

2nd go. Dropped it just before joining TSP from a hasty foot-ping.
Alex Mason - Lead RP - 28/Jul/13 with Jemma Powell
Had a go when feeling whacked after sussing out UN. Feels significantly harder. A bit of a project for me.
stugreen75 - TR dog - 03/Jul/13 with dominic jeff
Too cold on the fingers to climb a whole route today, numb tips, disapointing.

Put the clips in then 3rps...two new sequences learnt (i think). Quite hot today poor friction!
ANC - Lead dog - 22/May/12 with Jules, Amanda
very warm and greasy but individual moves came back to me mostly and all felt ok.
julesp - Lead dog - 22/May/12 with amanda and angus
Put the clips in and then two red point attempts. Easy to the 'Marlina' crack and thereafter really just learning experiences. Got some particularly good beta at the end of the day and during attempts. Project.
ANC - Lead dog - 16/May/12 with Jules, Amanda, Stuart S
Clean to marlene crack, would have been asking too much to get it first try even with beta. Seems sequency. Will need a couple of goes to work it out better. Defiantly much harder than HT and UN.
ANC - Lead dog - 15/Apr/12 with Fraser Harle, Andy Schofield, John, Louise Humphreys, Amanda
Hidden - Lead rpt - 17/Mar/12
Definitely harder than Hamish. Worth 7c

andyinglis - Lead dnf - 18/Sep/10 with Angus N Clark
First 7c (depending on which guide you believe...)
Neil Adams - Lead RP - 09/Sep/10 with Andy Inglis
Can't believe I hadn't tried this before
Sam the Butcher - Lead RP - 12/Jul/10 with adam
Unsure whether Marlina is 7c or not? Then add in the purse groove to seal the deal :-) "Marlinas Purse" feels like a better line anyway.
sheppy - Lead RP - 24/Apr/10 with simon
Done on my 1st redpoint attempt. Felt quite easy as these things do when you get it right.
Dangerous Dave - Lead RP - 14/Mar/10 with Marcus
Got good beta on top section hopefully will nail it next time.
Dangerous Dave - Lead dog - 11/Oct/09 with Marcus
Got a sequence on the last section where it goes left. Not sure its a good one though!
Dangerous Dave - Lead dog - 01/Oct/09 with Polish Pete
Very technical. Shame it's so far away!
whistler - Lead dog - 01/Oct/09 with Dangerous Dave
Harder than teddies, probably easy 7c
akhughes - Lead RP - 29/Aug/09 with Emma Hughes
6 days work! More that teddys. Harder than hamish teds, if hamish is 7b+ then this is definately 7c. Lead hamish straight after i lead marlina and its a lot easier. whatever though, glad to have it done! Awesome route.

1st redpoint after falling high on the flash, more like 7c, harder than Teddy's
willackers - Lead RP - 28/Mar/09 with Stew, Jeans, Nick, Litster
Quite tricky at end. Probably deserves 7c.
NDD - Lead RP - 25/Mar/09

Marlene? The moves are OK, even had 1 go at the RP, but if I said I wasn't completely shut down by this I'd be lying.
Paz - Lead dog - 11/Jun/08 with SC
best route on the sport wall. Hard 7B+, but not enough 4 7c! More technical but less powerful or pumpy than Hammish!
