A brilliant and revolutionary route which gives superb sustained climbing which is never desperate. Spend a few weeks stamina training at the climbing wall then go for it and you may get an 8a tick. © ROCKFAX

Luke Dawson - Lead RP - 10/Jul/14 with Charles Dawson

Awesome! One of the best 8a's I've ever done. Fantastic climbing. Messed up my sequence big time on the successful red point. Forgot to use the undercut on the top crux, had to match the side pull..sketchy! About 5th session. Maybe 8th red point

Two parts, progress. Worked out better sequence for top red point thin crux section

Finally put this nemesis to bed. 1st attempt of the day - finishing as the top groove was starting to get wet in the rain.
keefe - Lead RP - 30/Jul/11 with Tansy

Didn't feel that bad on redpoint
Ally Smith - Lead RP - 24/Jul/11

Dogged then fluffed redpoint moving right at top. Tide forced an early retry and i didn't get into undercuts.

Ally Smith - TR dog - 05/Aug/09 with ksjs

hard, harder than i expected. struggled with traverse (pumpy), cross-through move to slot (where do my feet go?) and then moves right into groove at top (no footholds!) all a bit rushed due to tide. need another go to get a real feel for moves but great to be on the route after walking past it so much...
