I had no excuses this time as I had solid shiny new bolts, near perfect conditions and the right colour of top :)Koon - Lead RP - 06/Oct/13 with John Sharples
Failed miserably on the crux and can only pull through one out of four tries. After Stuart dropped off the grinder for John to chop off the old bolts, tried a slightly different sequence as suggested by John and it was good despite the blazing sun and warm rock. So no more excuses next time!!!
Koon - Lead dog - 28/Sep/13 with John Sharples
so after three days of work around 8 to 9 crux falls and a huge whipper from the top due to a heel pop the route has finally gone :D. Think this is the first ascent on the new bolts which are fantastic and have been holding me on every fall. Great route but feet are so awkward on the crux. Two Stars.

Well the shiny new bolts put in by John Sharples and Stuart Burns can certainly hold my falls!

Ginger McGrath - Lead RP - 17/Jun/12 with jimmyrua
got in 2 halfs, should go next session, physced!
Ginger McGrath - Lead dog - 19/May/12 with marcus, euan strachan
All moves done and not too bad with exception of the foothold I cross my left foot onto before going for the left arete hold. Did the crux on one red point only to fluff up just after....raging. will go another day. Defiantly harder than half breed for me and how half breed doesn't have more stars than this I can't fathom! One star? Half Breed 2/3 stars.

Sent via my dodgy, crux avoiding, righthand sequence. Nice climbing possibly reducing the grade to F7a/+. The top rope warm-up went really badly so I was quite pleased to pull this send from the fire in fading light. Might have another go at the orthodox left-hand version now.

Worked out a good sequence to the right of the traditional crux. Will go for RP soon.
JLS - TR dog - 28/Aug/11 with Jacqui
Great route. Definitely easier than Half Breed, soft F7b?
Brendan - Lead RP - 22/Aug/11 with Stewart
1 quick session on top rope, and lead done on 2nd attempt
stewnew - Lead RP - 22/Aug/11 with brendan
Couldn't pull on the crux arete pinch so had a look at going up on the right side of the bolts which seemed to have possiblities...

Had a good play on this. worked the moves on top rope, will hopefully go next time.
dougs1232 - Lead dog - 18/Jun/09 with Lawrie Brand
On-sight, more like 7a+ only one tricky move
willackers - Lead O/S - 03/May/09 with Steve Richardson, Cobra
Finally, FINALLY.....got this route ticked. Midges and the imminent prospect of rain were the key ingredients after all. For me, the whole route depended on body positioning and trust in the footholds.

really enjoyed trying this one. Once the feet were sorted at the hard move it was ok.
