3rd go

Adam24B 18/Feb Lead RP

3rd go, tried it yesterday, fell of final crux move. Tried again today, worked some moves after falling off second go and succeeded after that. Nice juggy climbing up to a boulder problem crux section. Wild positions!

M_Robinson 17/Feb Lead dnf

Flashed to crux then lowered down

Superb. Had to fully lay one on for the crux, but it's only one move. The rest is just endurancey.

Fell off at the crux at the top. Need to come back for redpoint!

with Finney
benkelsey 12/Jan Lead RP

Put the draws in with 1 fall and 1 rest then sent next go, First 7c and probably the best route of the trip.

Wasn't able to flash the boulder problem on this. Second go was still hard, but OK.

spidermonkey09 23/Nov/17 Lead RP

Stonking route, one of the top 3 sport pitches I've done. Top boulder problem might be piss if you can reach the toehook, but it isn't if you can't! Fell off at the top once before getting it next go. Pumpy jug ladder followed by a powerful v4/5.

GraMc 07/May/17 Lead RP

muchos beta from Misha, 2nd Redpoint. Very stoked.

mishabruml 05/May/17 Lead RP

What a belter! 4th session, probably had around 10 goes on it in total. The no hands rest beta from Calum was the key. Perfect end to a great 8 months in chorro

3rd session on it, came super close today. only 1 fall before the crux and at the crux, the rest came clean and reasonably easy. Sorted out the sequence up to the clip before the jug rest on the headwall which has been a major stopper for me previously. psyched!

Lost the OS with a rather unexpected foot pop making the mid crux clip, otherwise composed and only another easy clip from the chains. Bit disappointed to lose the OS on this one, probably the most amenable 7c for onsighting I've climbed. Cracking line.

Try to second David but to steep for me.

First 7c! 6th RP over 5 days. Fell off the last hard move 4 times. Steady 7a+/b to a shouldery V4.

As good as it gets! Superb crux high on the route. Psyched to onsight this and laughed that I missed the jug at the crux!

Straight after Poema de Roca L2. Had wanted to try this when I first arrived and finally got round to doing it. Not too bad, really fun and nice and long. Pretty easy to onsight as it is fairly straight forward. Definatly worth doing!

JBO 18/Feb/14 Lead O/S

Amazing climb, probably the best I've done. Shook out on almost every hold, climbing really steadily, and then just turned it on for the crux! I was lucky to have the clips in though...

Bristoldave 13/Jan/14 Lead RP

1st Rp. Gave full beans on the crux! Think there might be a bolt missing, quite a runout 2 bolts below crux

with Caroline
Ricky Rocks 20/Dec/13 Lead RP

2nd go went to far left on the on sight.. Amazing route.

A meandering line of perfect good holds, with an awesome, punishing crux

2nd go.Brilliant.

After about five failures on the top crux. Should have gone earlier, but I was busy being rubbish. Soft, but I'll take it. First 7c. Bam!

with Josh
Tophe ??/2012 Lead RP

I wasn't sure If I was going to get this, I think it could be hard for the short as I couldn't get a toe hook on the crux like others.

Toby Dunn 29/Dec/11 Lead RP
jgustafsson 28/Dec/11 Lead RP

Put draws up and then did 2nd go after that. Possibly on the easy side if I can do in a day, but maybe I just found the final crux quite managable.

1st RP. Stuck the clips in then did it. Soft or reach-dependent, I can't remember which.

Alex Mason 08/Apr/10 Lead

Went for the onsight. going well, thought id done crux until i got to it. Fell on last move, didnt realise there was a jug up left so went for, what i thought was a pocket/thread but subsequently used as an intermediate press. So close again just didnt read it well enough. Big move on the crux v3/4. SICK!
