18m. Now 8a+ in 2015 guide following further hold loss. More holds are likely to follow - the tier is very loose.


CAUTION: Be careful on the short solo to the belay ledge - there is a lot of lose rock around so advisable not to stand below climbers or under ropes when they are being pulled.

Fun battle against skin and conditions. Very sustained for a non-eliminate at Cheddar. I'm taking 8a+ given I didn't pre-clip the bolt by the crimps making for a v tough clip and a nameless fatty (he tells me it's due to his power, but I'm not so sure) pulled of a v useful hold on the last section. Doesn't make the moves much harder (I think it climbs better now and the hold [an upside down crozzly-spike] was a skin shredder) but it does turn a poor rest into an awful rest.

Good to come back and finish this off at last

Classic Chedder 8a. The old jug (now sika crimp by 2nd bolt) would have made the route a lot easier, but I would keep it at hard 8a rather than 'give away' 8a+.

Hard and intense but great climbing. This route rewards patience and determination! I had run out of patience..and skin, so it was good to do it. The crimp moves at second bolt are desperate.

You should have flashed it Jim! 8a+ I reckon. One of the best 8's in cheddar. Which isn't saying much I suppose. But definitely worth doing. A good old power endurance battle.

Very close today but unfortunately no cigar!

Just scraping in at 8a+ I think. Felt really tired on it though after too many days on.

Great route! I think first ascent since the jug came off. Probably F8a+ now. Thanks to Al for the belay.
