Really like this, even though it's horrible. I've done easier 7cs.

I know everyone hates this but I quite enjoyed it. Sustained a blood blister on a tip but worth it for the top. 1st rp once I did the crimp move

1st RP was a shambles, got my arm caught behind the rope at the second bolt, 2nd RP was another shambles, but I managed to scrap up it.

2nd go....just 1 or 2 moves at the start gives it the grade

Thought this was pretty shit tbh. Hard painful move then easy climb to a tricky top.

Should have done first redpoint but fell right by the lower off. Not enough all day stamina. Fell off touching the last hold next go and then had a big rest before getting it done.

Pretty nippy for 7b

two runs on a top rope and ticked it first redpoint. I grabbed the chain, as the final undercut you clip the chain from was soaking. First time I've ticked a 7B in a session

Originally tried to go direct past first bolt till the error of my way was pointed out by Mick Lovatt who should know. It is possible but much harder than the more usual way which uses holds up and right.

Mike Goldthorp 25/Mar/10 Lead RP

One lead dog to work out moves then lead. Awesome holds and cool moves.

Wow- felt really stiff for the grade- but then i'm not much good at razor crimps- top sequence nails, bottom sequence painfully hard.
