Sticking the first crux is annoyingly difficult. Second crux easily done with feet sorted. Third crux is exiting the niche leftwards, at which point I have little endurance left...

From the chunky layaway to the mushroom at the top, continually interesting and challenging climbing. Crux was a reach from a layaway that wasn't a layaway. Pleased to get this. 7b next...

Thrashed around on it on top rope a few weeks ago. After watching a couple of others work it on lead, it felt awesome to send it on the first attempt. First crux through the two ledges I found reach dependent, trust the small footholds. Second crux done with right drop knee sequence to the left jug. First 7a+ :)

Evie 15/May/11 Lead RP

Amazing route. Got it on 1st lead attempt after two topropes. Found it easier not to use the side pull out right through the crux, which apparently takes the grade down to 7a. Big moves on polished holds. My favourite route on Portland.... so far..... :)

First tried two years ago but couldn't do all the moves. Had one go last year and could do the moves but didn't have the endurance to link them. At last I can do the route. Will lead it next time.

Real good climbing, 2 big moves. Got a pumped bicep hanging around on undercut before the second crux.

Never climbed on flowstone, its funky! Had beta on the two cruxes so felt pretty steady, but big moves and sometimes quite tricky feet.

Fell off once at crux.

Nearly got the onsight but had to settle for a reasonably straight forward redpoint. Some very thin moves to get to the crux which people seem to have a few ways of doing. Absolutely brilliant route!
