Really happy for Josh to get this, another 7a for him! Weirdly I was pretty comfortable on the 7a section getting it clean each attempt after having figured out the best way up for me, but pulling up over the roof was stressing out my elbow so I threw in the towel. Going to come back and get it.

Tommy put clips in I went for the flash but fell off low crux didn't get the move quite right.. Done all the moves including the top should go if I can hold it together...

First 7a in the UK. Relatively straightforward after decoding the crux sequence. Good rest at the break.

Brilliant climb, very pumpy and then the roof...well worth a burn.

Pretty easy moves as long as you don't pump yourself out on the roof.

Can't work out the beta for the crux. Nice moves though.

got it third go, easy once you've figured the sequence, 2nd clip requires balls

Love this route. The second bolt is an awesome bouldering problem and definitely the crux.

Hard climbing up the rib, with the dread of the steep finish in the back of your mind all the time!!!

Much better start to The Unworthy. Can do the hard stuff, always fail on the rood though.
