Rockfax Description
The easiest 8a of the lot. There is a rest after the first bulge followed by a tricky crux in the middle section before finishing out left. A longer finish joins the last part of Parasite. © Rockfax

1st RP after trying at the end of the day in June.

The starting moves are worse than shit, kind of ruined it for me.

Heel-toe helps getting into undercut. Still unable to do the crux move but heel hook helps getting there.

Dogged every bolt on first attempt. Second attempt climbed clean to hardest move of second crux. Could pull through crux after a rest but too powerful and couldn't figure out how to get through when tired. Clipping will the intresting after the crux!

Still a bit of a fight. 4 proper sessions.

dswansonlow 17/Apr Lead dog

3 tries. 1st - felt hard climbing and clipping in with no beta. 2nd - from the floor to the middle of the crux. 3rd - from floor to middle of crux using better hand beta but foot beta was still wrong.

Had one go working the moves, then managed it in two overlapping halves the next go. Good progress for one session.

A quick and very halfhearted attempt.

Account opened. Didn't feel as soft as expected but what a great route. Will be back!

Did not feel like the soft tick it's know as to me! Maybe I'm just not tall and not good at power moves over a roof! Maybe around 5 rpts spread over about 4 years! Toe hook beta was critical

Psyched to do individual hard moves (off the deck and also through the roof) but power faded later on.
