Bates 18/Jan Lead RP

Fluffed onsight getting wrong handed around the pocket. Next go. 7a. Wicked route.

Excellent, bouldery crux. Starts left of the scoop and is thin for a few moves. The crux is the prow; sustained, burly climbing on good pinches. Got wrong handed near the pocket (not obvious sequence) but pulled through. Pumpy but I’d give it 7a!

2nd attempt, awesome climbing, felt like 7a+

codenamel 06/Apr/17 Lead RP

Beautiful climb, the sequence at the top was slightly complicated, yet, once figured out it felt great.

Ooooft. Starting to feel it now. 1st RP with tired arms...... Properly good route and IMHO hard for 7a. Should be a + in there somewhere. Brilliant pitch.

Quality Route!! Couple of crimpy moves at the start. Then steady and balancy up till the roof. Roof is pretty powerful with bouldery moves on couple of not so good pinches and pockets and then juggier holds just when you think you gonna be off. Also not that obvious to read. Tough 7a or maybe even 7a+

2nd go. Basically retroflashed. I must have been distracted by a passing butterfly.

Climbed clean for 80%. Dogged the hell out of last 20% (top).

Jonathan Emett 13/Feb/16 Lead

Crux has an extra bolt... Runout no longer. 1 lead and 3 clean topropes with some laps on the top bit. Feeling strong :)

Great climbing with a tricky little start and then a steep attack on the hanging prow! Wonderful route!

Almost onsight at the end of the day. Moves at top are hard! Bolt at crux feels a long way off! High in the grade but a brilliant climb nonetheless.

Found this hard near the top.

Alison Cairns 16/Jan/16 Lead dog

Nice technical start then a good rest. Crux is a series of powerful long reaches, with an unfortunately much too high bolt in the middle of them. Fell off getting to this then dogged to the top. Top roped cleanly after a rest so now on my RP list... (with an extended draw on the high bolt!)

1 fall when I got wrong-handed. Spotted the mega-pocket after the rest but then has to stop on grabbing it - ultra-sharp! Think it'd go fine with the beta.

Great route - boxed at crux and lost it on the down climb to decent rest. Hard to on sight.

Tough for 7a, technical lower down with a pumpy crux high up - easier if you move quickly!

I got to the steep bit but ran out of puff and psyche. Up to there it was about 6c+, rich thought 7a overall.
