A magnificent direct pitch, sustained and fingery but still low in its respective grade. A long reach or some cunning heek hooking helps.

Came back to this after failing on the crux at the end of the last visit to Foxhole. Fresher arms and a better idea of what to do got it ticked first time. Great route.

Brilliant and fun climbing that just doesn't suit me at all. Sustained and pumpy at the top, albeit on good holds. On my fifth attempt, fell two moves from the chains... Will go next go

Lead up to the crux. Then hung around for ages knackering myself. Belayed Conor up then topdogged (still knackered). Absolutely awesome route which will definitely go clean.

Dogged and Clip Sticked, struggling like crazy most of the way until the first decent hold past the crux. Crux very stiff for me (tall and lanky). Sadly, a fitting end to the worst day of climbing I've had in years managing to dog a 6a+ "dnf" a 7a on top rope and then this. Totally dejected :-( . . . . . . . still, tomorrow's another day eh? Post Edit: don't climb while injured :-( picked up a rotator cuff injury 2 weeks previous to this day which set me back months and months.
