Rockfax Description
A brilliant route up the line of triangular grooves. The initial wall and groove leads to two juggy pockets. Continue up the wall above until a hard move right gains the finishing wall. Lower-off at the main break. © Rockfax

good to finish this off after falling going from the tooth to the break 5 times at the weekend and once after the break.

Second session. The best sport route I've done so far, big fight from the eyes right to the top.

Such a brilliant route. Skipped the clip off the boss. Fell going to the jugs after the boss twice, then did it by the skin of my teeth third go! Good fight

2nd go, pretty sure I climbed the section from the eyes differently both times. Was convinced I was going to fall off every move on the run out to the chain

Felt too tired, too many days on.

Wood for Trees 21/May/16 Lead dnf

Found the move to the eyes a bit hard work out, luckily had James on Indian Summer telling me the higher crux sequence. I find this okay but the idea of clipping off the boss is exciting. Took a big ride from near ledge as pockets not all dry. Very good route.

1st 7c+ 4th day on it, 2nd RP day, 6th PR attempt - 3rd that day. Never under-estimate the 3rd RP!! Lunge again at the crux rather than the drop knee.

Had brilliant beta from Pete and had watched Chris come really close so I had a pretty good idea of what to do. First 7c+ flash and on the best sport route I've done in the country - a great experience.

Went quickly after I changed my beta for the crux, but still very close on the successful attempt. Awesome route.

Did it first go, putting draws in as I went, after 2 poor redpoint attemps a few days earlier. Lovely route.

Stunning route. 7a+ to the 'eyes' and a good shake, then blast upto the boss, shakeout and final tricky move to the first big break. Breath and enjoy the run-out to the belay.
