Gin Palace*** 7c
[strugeling on gin palace, 2 kb]18m.

Rockfax Description
An amazing route, a 7b+ chimney into a harder and sustained headwall. Some will walk up the slot, others will just be totally shutdown by it, and vice-versa with the headwall. © ROCKFAX

UKC Logbook Description
One of many gems left scattered around, courtesy of Yorkshires finest acid folk DJ. Ascend the obvious hanging groove past numerous bolts, pull the roof out L and finish up the energy sapping crack.

Slightly obnoxious but so much fun - very Smith.
Think working on a building site

Awesome. Worked out the moves - super psyched to go back with fresh legs and see if I can do it clean.

What an introduction to slate! Heavily dogged and couldn't make it out of the groove into the top crack. Exhausting!

Michael Allday - Lead dog - 06/Nov/11 with John beecham

awesome route. Feels quite hard for 7c but not done much on slate so don't know. 4th bolt was a bit loose, can pull it out about 1cm, (with full body weight pulling out on it).
lx - Lead - 25/Aug/11 with alison

Someone forgot to attach the big holds...
Rob Greenwood - UKC - Lead dnf - 2011 with Shinta Osawa

Hidden - TR dog - 11/Sep/10

Amazing. A bit of water in the top is my excuse. Nothing to do with the huge amount of energy to make one microns progress of course.
