tommccluskey 20 Sep, 2015 Lead RP 3rd tie in - fastest 7c yet. Probably a bit soft but it's definitely worth more than 7b!

philhaigh 17 Jun, 2015 2nd dog Sharp boulder problem. Hard to grade but much easier than crucifix kiss.. 7b would seem harsh though. Broke a hold, but nothing vital.

RadekNowak 7 Jun, 2014 Lead RP 1st RP attempt, however I worked all the moves on top rope twice before. Not sure about the grade. Rockfax says 7c, but it didn't feel much harder then other 7b's I've done (only 2). I would give it hard 7b or maybe 7b+, but due to lack of experience in these grades, I may be wrong.Also, I needed to make few more moves then my mate who is taller. Perhaps it is slightly more cruxy for shorties.

lewiz 31 May, 2014 Lead RP Third go after a silly fall on the second. Easy until a short bouldery crux. I'd love to take this as my first 7c but it went much easier than Zinc Oxide Mountain for me. Gonna have to grade it hard 7b+ (but not as hard as ZOM :). Still chuffed. UPDATE: after further consideration I don't think this can even get 7b+. It went faster than some hard 7bs I've climbed, perhaps my style, perhaps a good day, yadda yadda, but I think it's hard 7b max.
