Rockfax Description
An excellent climb. Ascend the slim groove to moves left at half-height. Some more difficult climbing gains the easier curving overlap above. © Rockfax

Retro flash? Putting the draws in, had tried it once last year. Certainly 3 star route. Superb once you step left off the ramp, full body twisting and the double gaston!! Have climbed easier 7b+'s

Good route. Had to go for it and somehow stayed on. Not easy to read at all.

Initially got the wrong line of bolts and tried the much harder (unlisted?) route to the left. After failing miserably, reset onto the correct path. Managed to the top of groove in one, then crux and through to top after many many attempts in a couple of sections.

hung around at the last bolt for ages trying to figure out the blindingly obvious move then jugs to the lower off. Very sequencey and not as bold as it looks. Opening moves were the hardest in my opinion, no doubt ill be back again for another go

Andy did well to dog his way to the top on a "lead", so I top roped it. Mostly OK, but continuous all the way up until the finishing crack/jugs, with IMO the hardest moves to get to the 4th bolt. Spaced protection and the 3rd will be a bugger to clip. Will work and RP another time.

felt fairly desperate on first (optimistic) onsight attempt/dog but went ok 1st rp. great sequence all the way from leaving the groove to clipping the chains.

Awesome climb. Powerful start with a really technical, fingery crux at the top. Only done a few F7bs so far but this felt stiff in comparison.

joe larner 17/Feb/08 Lead dog

Found it OK up until the crux using the undercuts to get the overlap. Will be back though, nice climb.
