Great line! Very chuffed to get the flash. Good beta from Joe proved to be the key!

To second break then pretty much bailed due to the cold. Great problem. Will be back. Used intermediate hold to do the bottom.

Should have flashed. Deployed the uber lank on the first move which probably brings it down to F6b.

Really useful hold on the top out has become very loose. Makes the top out extra spicy so I backed off

Tom Pillow 08/Nov/17 Sent

Did it to the top were the top out hold is now very loose so traversed right and topped out else were . would not suggest anyone pulls on the top holds as its gonna go soon.

Right foot out further right, outside edge left foot on pebble. Probably going to have to commit to the shit slopy crimp...

Hidden gem! First move is tricky and then there is another similarly tricky one to gain the final break. Mantelling out is fine. Brill.

soft 7a, or perhaps just easier if you're tall. Great climbing though and a right buzz at the top!

Team send, quality line and great moves one of the best 7As in the Peak, just high enough to add a little spice at the top.
