Getting close to this one... made all the moves but havnt attemped linking yet. Its not a very enjoyable route in my opinion but I dont have much experiance to be judging. I'd agree with it being the hardest route on south wales sandstone though!

Wow, didn't expect to be clipping the belay on this one tonight! As far as grade's concerned I've no idea, I'll reserve my vote until I've got more experience at this level.

9th May Really amazing route, did the crux on my 6th go, really happy with that, just struglying with the roof at the top, have no finger tips left now! only route i can compare it to is Skin Ed at dinas and this is a lot harder. Goi mentions not going right handed from the moves out from the matchstick, how did you do it? 3rd June. Got on it after Onsighting Encore! 7b+, this is a diffrent League, 8a all day long, if not is 7c+. Guna spend a night on it soon, its guna go soon!

Interested to see the recent video. I notice a lot more moves than we used to do. The climber is moving up from much lower footholds, and going right handed from the moves out from the matchstick. Might be harder that way. The route was quite popular in the mid 90s, before the jug came off (at the lip) and smashed the belayers knees in (ouch). In reply to Morgan - Left Handed. The route has had a lot more than 7 Ascents - I know 5 others not listed here. This used to be considered Fr7b+, I'm glad I held out and graded it Fr7c :)
