16m. Takes direct line up the wall to the left of Bass Drum Heart. The first half has no protection whilst the more difficult top section is protected by a thread and Dixon ironmongery. The crux is left right till the end! Sustained.

Must be v reach-dependent. Felt like 7a+ish for me, at 6'1".

What a belting route. Protected the lower wall with tricams. Really builds up to a crescendo!

Surprised myself, just the last move I couldn't manage which I put down to shoulder injury and 'the flu'! Really have stepped my game up!

Lead it as it was coming into the sun. Found it flowed far better on the lead, couldn't get it all clean on the top-rope! nice to climb something well dialed

After some beta from Ben and a quick dog up on the warm up. Very lead able just to hot today, need to wire the bottem to :-) None of the moves feel that hard, all there. just need to grow some balls for the first bit

Worked the bottom crux moves on first attempt, but failed on final crux then got to last move in one on second attempt and figured out top move. Dogged on third attempt

Stunning route, top roped cleanly once then lead first go putting the gear in. Almost off on last move, spicy times!

could not figure out a very reachy move above the huge hole (being 5'5); up to there lovely pocket pulling

JM 05/Jun/12 Lead RP

Amazing climb! Unfortunately I ripped the good bit off the undercut at the top. The long move at the top is a bit harder now.

Get in!Tried yesterday on tr a few times found a few bits tricky so worked them but didnt think the top move was possible with my reach; later in the evening got beta off Boothy for top move and managed to get top crimp off two lower smears at full reach. 1rp yesterday, 2nd rp today. At 5'9 with a slightly negative ape index the top move is just reachable, so chuffed to latch it. Bold start. E7/8 6c, F7c/+ imo.

Mike Goldthorp 01/Sep/10 Lead β

Not a flash but they dont have a ground-up option, and it definately wasnt a redpoint. Fell off on flash attempt on the (relatively) easy deep-mono move after havin to really try to get through first crux! Cam ripped and smacked me in the head - bled everywhere. Lowered off, came back the next day and sent! Top crux felt ok, locked the undercut up to the crimp easily, then pullin through felt insecure! E7 6b/c - 2 hard cruxes but both safe. Easier for tall

Incredible route, fell off it twice on the last hold!! Definitely not E8 - hard E7. Cheers for the belay Fennerz.

Ed Booth 08/Apr/09 Lead RP

Felt good. Was getting good recovery on the big holds and managed to get in quite a bit of other good gear next to the fixed gear. Nice to get another project finished.
