The third full sport route on this section. The obvious crack in the headwall is gained via a tricky move over the roof. 'The' route of the quarry and a strong candidate for best Fr.7a on sandstone.

Made it up to the crack on 1st go, but too tired to improve 2nd time around

Brilliant route. Good moves, good rock, and a good line. Wasn't very far off the onsight, but used a duff sequence on the final crack. Went easily first RP.

Made it through the overlap fine but broke a foothold and got too pumped in the crack section - next time!

The start of the redpoint siege. Holds felt greasy. Quality route however. Couldn't get through the overhang. But the top is even harder, but I just about got through it.

First go today, draws in on lead. Crux pocket was soaking but the rest was dry. Got ridiculously pumped on the crack but just about battled through!

Seriously dooged on lead. Poor effort from me really.

with Gen
Stuart William 08/Jun/13 Lead dog

worked all the moves on lead but fell moving up to the last bolt on the final redpoint attempt, think I just got off balance for the layback moves and stepped in too far. First attempt at working a sport route, still got some things to learn about working routes.
