Rockfax Description
A classic route from the '70s which gives a great companion to Countdown. The bouldery wall leads to a hanging groove where a poor rest is possible. Move back left and up to the lower-off. A wire might help. Pitch 2 is described with the Upper Tier. © Rockfax

FA. Gabriel Reagan, Al Evans 1976. Both pitches were done with a point of aid on P2. P1 was harder than anything else around at the 2000

So so happy to get this. What a great route. Went first red point today after a disastrous top rope warm up go. Bet Remus is happy too as he no longer needs to climb this to put the clips in for me :)

Big progress! Worked out the move out of the groove and made some really good links. Best was from the second bolt to the top. Need to get on the lead!

Flash putting the clips in thanks to some key beta from gus. Fierce start! If this is near your limit bring some wires for the runout between bolt 2 & 3. Also did the sandbag 6b+ and 7A to warmup

Felt great today. Had a blast on toprope, all felt fine, then more of a fight on the sharp end, cruxes were fine but the traverse left on smears went completely pear shaped. Just held it together. Really enjoying this redpointing business at the moment. Moves felt dialled.

Hard! Battled through to the top. Bottom crux ok once I sussed it on the third go. Getting out of the groove and onto the slab took a few goes as well. Not convinced I found the easiest sequence in the end. Getting across the slab proved harder than expected - ended up getting pumped in a comedy spreadeagled position. Very good, varied route.

Thought this was hard for the grade - the bouldery lower section nearly spat me off, then the traverse was polished and covered in dust, not ideal conditions... possibly a tad overrated. Felt more like E4 than 7a at some points.
