A powerful and technical route that has some great climbing weaving between the bolts. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Straightforward climbing to a hard and slippery crux pulling over the roof by the second bolt. Long move up then a tricky traverse left and a delicate finish.

Too hard for me right now, but cool to have a go on. Had to pull on draws past some of the hardest moves...but a fun route all the same. One day maybe

Felt so west after a long day labouring. Supprised I managed it as every move felt harder than yesterday. Went 2nd rp with a bit of a scrap at the top.

Lovely slippery crux around the roof with wacky moves, then awsome flowing climbing to finish. Top moves took a while to figure out but managed to get a steady (ish) sequence. Had a rp but slipped at the crux.

Hard!

Draws in then 4 gos where either I persisted in using duff crux beta or didn't know what to do with my feet once through the crux. Done next go. Really good, nice contrast from RF (I thought this easier than RF, I do wonder though if beta is the key to this i.e. I was shown good beta but without is maybe why people are saying hard 7c?)

2 gos, all moves done. No harder than RF.

First 7c! Took a while to warm into the moves but managed to figured out some crucial last minute beta for the top section.

Such cool moves! Managed to do all the moves, which was pleasantly surprising. Looking forward to this little project!

Quick top rope, then first redpoint. knew as soon as id done the bottom crux that id do it, although came very close to blowing the very last move! first 7c and first E6 in a day! well happy!

was pretty wet. but still close to getting it clean on toprope. climbed passed the crux (wet holds) and then second overlap well. but just couldn't get the top sequence before the lower off quite right. so thin!!

Tough nut to crack. Every move needs thought...Looking forward to red pointing.

Really good slate climbing, tricky crux but fairly sustained overall. Felt easy on the send after 2 dogged leads and 3 falls at crux on redpoint attempts.
