What a line on some of the best sandstone in the county. Great moves and a committing top.

Brilliant, though alot easier than the given grade! Amazing line, even better than I thought it would be!

Fantastic problem. I had my foot down all the way from sheffield so I didn't miss the pad scenes. I arrived just as the crew was about to move on but managed to do it first go as a warm up. pretty chuffed!

2nd go. beautiful line. magical spot. not as hard as 7a+ but high.

3rd go. Absolutely amazing. Have wanted to do this for ages and it didn't disappoint! Certainly soft at 7A+

Shut down whatever way I tried it - Blame general lack of ability and mankyness in crack.

Smelly Fox 26/Jan/15 Sent dnf

A bit manky in the crack, but not really a good excuse for failure...

Fell from the top. Will be back on a dry day with more pads...Great problem.

Highballs don't get much better than this, one of the finest problems of the grade in the country.

Well worth 3*! Everything I had hoped for with this problem. Tricky start but flows once you have your sequence. Probably my favourite climb in Northumberland

Second go - didnt fancy taking the fall off the top - probably easy 7a+ but feels harder due to 'spice'.. AWESOME

made it to the crack, but kept slipping out... apparently it needs to be cold, not warm and humid, excuses aside, its a very dropable, but cool problem, need to get stronger (and possibly taller- damn you giants!) to get established in the crack...although not many holds at the top...

Lots of tries to get the first half wired. Fell from the top slopers twice before success. Confirmed I'm too old for falling off high-balls.

Quite highball but good landing zone, you'll want at least 2 pads. Best font 7a+ in the county...
