Rockfax Description
Start under the right arete. The short will need a cheating stone to reach a slot in the roof, others will leap. Pull over to a poor break and finish up the tough arete. Very highball f7A+. © ROCKFAX

Cast of thousands. Ocean of pads.

Highball Font 7a+ is probably about right with a big team and plenty of pads. Excellent.

3rd go, ground up above a healthy pad stack. Should have done it 2nd really but got numb cold hands and powered out right at the top. Big semi-planned plummet ensued. Got away with it fortunately despite missing the pads with one foot. Got better beta sorted for the top and sketched it out next go. Some great memorable moves.

Onsight attempt. Fell off from the top -- a miss is as good as a mile, though. Year a guess.
