A hard route with a powerful finish up the thin headwall above Pure Gold. It incorporates an old left-hand start to Pure Gold up a steep scoop. © ROCKFAX

Got to the crux move clean then pumped out trying to figure out the move. Big old move required in the end that took several attempts before I got it. Skin was looking very thin afterwards so didn't have another go.

sadly i couldnt Capture the Coelacanth due to damp crimps. really quite liked this but the run-out is just stupid. also why not swap the starts of this and Pure Gold to give more logical lines? lowered from last bolt. cruxy.
