Rockfax Description
A classic pump-out with a hard move low down and a demanding upper half. This has not been re-equipped at the time of writing and only has old drilled-pegs in place. © Rockfax

Finally felt easy. Fantastic. Might have been quicker to go to Saskatchewan to mine some uranium. 7 days this year and 3 last year. 13 June with Andy. Close blah blah blah. 25 May 2017 with Andy. It is 20 moves to the half way ledge. I did 17. Twice. And then 19. Twice. 18 May 2017 with Pymn. In two halves to and from bolt 5. Intermediates to both pockets really help. Sweet. 9 May 2017 with AJM. 5 May 2017 with Drew. Top half clean. Lower half getting there. 23 April 2017 with Brian. Remembered all the sequences but didn't put much together yet. 31 July 2016 with Lamont. Oh no. The clipping jug in the middle of the sustained post-crux section came off in my hand. New sequence ok, but clipping tricky. 12 July 2016 with Lamont. In three sections. Rest at bolt 4 and bolt 8. Felt great. Game on! 1 July 2016 with AJM. Still hard this year. Maybe possible, but it's a big ask. 16 May 2015 with Vic. Very powerful lower half.

1st go today, 30th birthday send :) One of the best routes I've done on Portland . Succeeded by getting through the sequency crux & sustained crimping up to bolt 5 as fast as possible.

A very cool route, challenging throughout with a no hands rest in the middle. Managed to get all the beta sorted apart from the moves out right between bolts 3 & 4. Skipped any fancy knee bars on the upper face in favour of lanking to a jug :) Too ruined for a decent redpoint attempt.

AJM 16/Jul/16 Lead RP

Excellent route. 6 tie ins in all over 2 short sessions, 1st proper redpoint attempt.

Completely shutdown, to say I didn't get far would be an understatement. Oh well.

Conditions very good, no problems this time. New beta on the lower section saves some moves, thank you Andy Morris.

After climbing the powerful lower half, fell on the technical stuff at the top, gutted. Its an excellent route, clean, testing throughout, classic.

Hard to on sight low down and a bit loose. AMAZING top section involving knee, lay backing up corners. Might have started in the wrong place, traversed right to re-join the line

Shot down! Maybe conditions, maybe not enough skin, or maybe a sandbag. Not sure.
