Manic Strain*** 8a

Rockfax Description
Another chipped route, which was 'designed' for tall climbers; shorter people find it much harder. Even for the tall it is ridiculously thin with long moves. © ROCKFAX

Did all the moves except the long reach left. Think I'll go back and have a proper go at this one.

Awesome! Chipped but very funky climbing. Took a while to work out a complex sequence for my high. About three sessions working out the moves then about three red-point sessions.

Stunning sequences that get better towards the top. Can do all the moves apart from one low down which requires 10mm extra reach! Would want better bolts before I consider a rpt. A route of this quality deserves to be re-bolted, I'll see what I can do...
