Rockfax Description
A rewarding climb up the well-defined corner and wall to the left of the mid-height tree. The corner is overcome in its middle section by a precarious layback. The final wall is not straightforward on first acquaintance. The original finish moved out left and up from below the crux to the lower-off of Distant Lands (page 67 ) - this is an easier variation. © Rockfax

Bolt to bolt, redid the crux then lead it next go.

Fell off just I was putting the draw in the bolt at the top of the groove. Should've pressed on to the jug, but didn't spot the crucial foot. Another fall when I slipped off higher up as well. Tried on TR, groove was fine but hadn't worked out the top. One fall trying to locate the holds! A bit dirty, but excellent route.

Really enjoyed this, nearly on-sighted (would've been my first 7a send outdoors) but fell at the last staple before the lower off, a heartbreaker of a move! Micro crimp to 2 finger slopey pocket. Couldn't hold on and took a big fall trying to clip. Then did it after a few mins on the rope to finish up jug highway. Tried for the red point an hour later but had nothing left at the end of the day and fell in the same place. Gonna try clipping with right hand in the gaston (to right of slopey pocket) and better feet next time instead of the slopey 2 finger pocket and flailing desperation! Next time R/P for sure.
