Rockfax Description
A long diagonal pitch (30m) with some good climbing. Low in the grade. Start up Goldfinger to the second bolt. Traverse right into the semi-rest of Minos. Continue right via a very hard move, almost to the belay of Gonads. Climb straight up to the top. © Rockfax

Get in! First 8a. First proper redpoint siege and weirdly really enjoyed the grind. 3rd go today, surprised myself as I felt tired. 6th sesh overall.

Ok, make the clip, little shake out, breathe. You've done this before. take the side pull, left knee down, roll over left hand, thumb goes on. Inhale, tense core, slight detraction left arm, pop right index and middle finger onto intermediate, turn up left knee, move again with right and stretch up for high crimp, swing high left foot, clip with left hand, exhale. Inhale, right foot up onto smear, twist hips left, left hand cross-through to high undercut, twist further left, exhale, inhale, pop right hand to side pull, tense core, move left foot in, inhale, exhale, inhale, you fell off here before, right foot swing to small edge, this is new, exhale, right hand pop to last side pull, inhale, you can't fall now, it's done, exhale, flag left leg underneath right, don't drop this, inhale, move right hand down to the flatty, fuck I'm tired, inhale exhale, swap feet, inhale exhale, shit, right foot up, inhale, exhale fuck, cross through left hand to poor gaston, inhale, last fucking hard move and it's done, stop shaking, jus- NOOOOO!

2nd session and 2nd redpoint. Felt like a path with better beta for the start.

3rd session on, worked out a sequence that will go. Just need conditions to be alright and not come unstuck on the tricky crux move. Done in two parts today.

First 8a in quite a while, good to feel 'on it' again. Probably soft, but most importantly it's good!!

Rob Greenwood - UKClimbing 02/Aug/16 Lead dog

The world's worst conditions prevented a send, but were adequate enough to work a few of the moves...just... Very condensed!!

Reckon this could have gone in a session if I was on form...but I wasn' it didn't...

Psyched to try the moves on this - it even felt pretty plausible! Very techy.

Should've gone second go, instead took three sessions! Shambles redpointing! Fantastically techy

Great technical climbing though with only one really hard section containing one really hard move. Tried it Nathan's way - too reachy. Maddies way - too on-off. Finally tried michaelas way and it seems the best of the bunch.

Fluked my way through first time today having last been on it a few months ago. Very happy with that.
