Rockfax Description
A superb route with three hard sections. The tricky lower wall leads to a shake-out at the roof. Gaining a good hold in the roof is difficult, then easier moves lead to the lip. One more tricky section pulling leftwards around the roof leads to the lower-off. © Rockfax

Really enjoyed this, entertaining climbing throughout. May well be soft for the grade, but only if you're good at that sort of thing!

Probably the most surprised I've ever been to climb something! Felt awful on the first two reacquainting goes... Then managed to fight up it on the third, having nearly said take by the third bolt.... Lip moves felt easier on lead than off the rope... Bizarre stuff! (Nice one to Rob for the new bolts)

Gave it a good brush/clean, think this could have been the first ascent of the year? Definitely needed it as all the holds were pretty dusty/dirty.

7c+. Also tried Monumental today and there's no way these two are within 1 grade. That should go up and this should go down.

Wasted quite a bit of time redpointing with bad sequences, felt really good when I got it right.
