Fluffed last move 2nd go on Monday, did it 1st go today putting the draws in. Ended up skipping the last 2 bolts. Middling 7c+ and no harder.

Brilliant route, three distinct sections - Hard 7b / Easy 7a / v5/6 finish. I'm taking easy 8a for it as per last 5yrs and climber consensus!

Bad finger really unhappy I think its the underclings on wiziwig.

with iain jo and alex

route feels completely different at the top now the birds nest is gone. First few moves of crux feel easier with a heel/toe cam but its hard to keep the tension releasing it.

Getting the boulder problem clean to top and coming down to underclings to switch hands on jug. Still not happy with the move at the top of wizy but think i just have to do it that way.

Made up,1st 8a. Can't quite believe it!

Cassidy 15/May/11 Lead RP

don't see why you would need to grab the chain at all?! Only 2 moves really. WYSIWIG part probably the crux still. 7c+ max

Burly. Did right hand finish, clipped the belay from the good flat hold.

with Ian Patterson

Micky J ?/Jul/08 -

the original route climbed up left and then back right to the belay which you could not clip and was hard and scary to grab since we could not clip the bolt below either ! A few new holds and a different finish have now been unearthed . Its good its 7c+ but it aint Dead Calm !!!
