Where are my Sensible Shoes?** 7b

Rockfax Description
A great route, with a couple of difficult sequences that are hard to read. Climb up to the first bolt and get stood up on a good ledge to clip the second. Hard moves right past this lead to a third bolt where sustained climbing leads past the fourth and fifth bolts. The direct finish is the same grade, but involves a very hard pull; most people move right and traverse back left to the lower-off. © ROCKFAX

So good, one of the best slate sport routes I've done. Done 2nd RP. Not easy, was 7a+, 7b in new guide but I've done easier 7b+s and don't think it'd raise many questions at 7b+ anywhere else.

About F7b. An excellent and pretty tricky crux. Led 2nd redpoint having fluffed the first redpoint because I gave myself duff beta.
Andrew Barker - Lead RP - 18/Apr/09 with Chunk

nails! 3 attempts at the crux each ended in a fall - sequence specific?
