Put clips in then first rp of the evening. Really not sure this is 7b+. Climbs really nicely though and the polish on the footholds doesn't really affect it much.

Cruising on first RP when foot popped. Too tired for another attempt. Next Time!

Kept on traversing right into Stone the Loach, I couldn't see any bolts or a lower off direct?

Hard, especially if you go direct at the top. 2nd best climb on the wall. Generous belay from Sir Jacobs and Madame Pygall.

Definitely 7b+, the initial crimpy section is hard enough, and the traverse along the overlap is pretty pumpy and strenuous. Good route though, for the Embankment

Tried to onsight but failed then failed to redpoint with a foot slip on a polished hold. Was sunny. Feel a bit happier now to see that its been upgraded to 7b+ !!

Very good route. Helps if it is a reasonably cool day to offset the polish, although it isn't that polished by Embankment standards.

put in a decent onsight effort considering relative tiredness but powered out quite high up and bottled a clip/grabbed the draw. steady 1st rp. Really good quality moves.
