At the bulge on New Dawn climb up right through the overlaps to a shake-out. A boulder-problem may get you to the still pressing and airy head-wall. Memorable. © Rockfax

First real fight on a route. Did this on the 3rd go today after falling off the second go feeling knackered, nearly abandoned it but didn't want to give up, inspired by Pete doing tremelo third go in a session

should have had it first redpoint? instead it took a further 10! A 7b+ short of a good hold. Thanks Al and Sarah

Put the draws in and had a look at the moves, then did it first go. I wish all routes went so easily.

1st 8a. Jerry Moffat onsighted it with my draws. Used to be graded 7c+ and was called "Shock of the New" when Steve Rhodes made the 1st ascent.
