Rockfax Description
A technical start and a finish that feels bolder than it is. There is also a finish to the right, which is harder, but less bold. © Rockfax

No practice first go ground up and felt in complete control. Conditions perfect. Sooo pleased.

Nearly had it, fell off final move to the thank god jug! Gutted because I had nothing left to try again - too tired from grafting for three days.

Finally. Fell off the last move several times a few years ago. Felt easy today.

Second go, after dropping the top moves on the onsight. Pleasantly powerful moves through the first three bolts are the best of this route, the top half is easier but less obvious. Would be high in the grade were it not split by such easy climbing.

Second bolt is hard to clip and should really be placed a bit lower. After faffing there and then grabbing the draw I ended up just missing it out on lead and clipping it from the jugs above. Top bit is not too hard when you know where to go but the easiest way is not at all obvious. Like other routes on this wall finding the holds is often the hardest thing about them. An OK route, more like one star than two though.

1st crux went fairly easily. worked top crux for a while but still not sure I got the right sequence

with Miles, Olli
Gambit 19/Jun/12 Lead RP

Great low crux sequence, easy middle section and a hidden hold on the top crux. found it of benifit to put two opposing quickdraws on the top bolt (made the top crux calmer)

One fall from the top crux, annoying to not get it first time, not overly hard to read.

Too hot and too hard for me. Was pretty pleased to be able to clip the first bolt (it's a long way up, and not an easy reach for the short). Not so pleased when I had to get the 'draws back, though.

A good tough route, just a pity the two hard sections are split by much easier climbing.

Completely shut down for a while, then finally made it to the last very difficult move near the top and failed.

hard for 7a, bottom felt like proper English 6b. Top stupidly run out. Not 2*'s!
